Career Education Within the University of Maine System: A Status Study.
Work, Gerald G.; And Others
In order to provide for comprehensive career education needs with appropriate models, it is first necessary to assess the present situation. The purpose of the study was an assessment of the status of career education on the University of Maine's campuses at Augusta, Farmington, Fort Kent, Machias, Orono, Portland-Gorham, and Presque Isle. The methodology (tape-recorded interviews employing a questionnaire format) and interview analysis (campus vignettes and system-wide analysis) are briefly discussed. A survey of related literature deals with the period from 1968 to the present, with emphasis on the post-1970 years. Vignettes for each of the seven campuses provide: a brief description of the institution, administrative responsibility for career education, past perspective, rationale, current programs, academic relationships, and future perspective. The final section, analysis and recommendations, presents eight operational principles relating to career development education which were selected as quasi-criteria in evaluating the Maine system and from which the conclusions and recommendations are drawn. The document concludes with a four-page bibliography and a list of the interviewees. (BP)
