The Dissemination of Local-Level, Long-Range Planning Systems to North Carolina Technical Institutes and Community Colleges. Occupational Education Research Project Final Report.
Allred, Marcus D.
A research and development project was conducted to design a system for collecting and processing manpower information at a local level. Three systems for use by local institutions to obtain information needed for long-range planning were developed--an annual survey of high school student aspirations, a follow-up survey of students who leave an institution, and a survey of business and industry concerning employment availability and training needs. Fifty-five of the 57 North Carolina technical institutes and community colleges completed long-range plans by using the model and methods described here (or some variation). In addition, better relationships between the colleges and their potential students and business community resulted. Appendices include the three survey instruments and the printouts for compilation of data, a flow chart for the activities of the dissemination project, and suggested outline format for long-range planning developed by community college personnel.
