A Work Force for Environment and Energy. A Master Plan for Environmental/Energy Higher Education in Illinois.
Illinois Inst. for Environmental Quality, Chicago.; Illinois State Board of Higher Education, Springfield.
This master plan for environmental and energy higher education in Illinois is a direct result of a mandate from the Illinois General Assembly. To prepare students to confront our nation's environmental problems, each university will submit a management and development plan, designed to preserve existing environmental values and provide improvements in the physical environment of that institution. Coordinated efforts, increased opportunities for study, evaluation of job market demands, and specific requirements for interdisciplinary training are suggested to meet the demands of career orientation in the environmental/energy area, and provide wider exposure of environmental affairs. Various university programs in the environmental fields are described. Establishment of Environmental Resource Centers, a responsibility of each institution of higher education, offers a valuable opportunity to the community college to relate its efforts to the community it serves. An examination of environmental training efforts by Illinois community colleges and course descriptions is provided. One section is devoted to manpower surveys and employment projections (1980) in the pollution control and abatement areas of air, noise, pesticides, public water, solid wastes, and waste water. An extensive inventory of current energy research and development projects, and available facilities for research in Illinois are provided. (BP)
