EPDA [Education Professions Development Act] Leadership Development Program. Final Report.
Southern Illinois Univ., Carbondale. Dept. of Occupational Education.
Seven graduate students were awarded Office of Education Professional Development Act (EPDA) fellowships to participate in the occupational education leadership program developed by Southern Illinois University during the 1974-75 academic year. All were enrolled as full-time students, three at the master's degree level and four at the doctoral degree level. During the year, each Fellow engaged in at least four distinctive types of leadership development activities. Each earned at least six semester hours of credit in individually arranged internships; completed administrative processes, theory, and planning courses; participated in an exclusive series of leadership development seminars; and engaged in related enrichment activities such as serving on an Illinois Division of Vocational and Technical Education public school evaluation team. The EPDA Leadership Development program has been evaluated and, in general, its objectives have been achieved. The interdisciplinary, performance-based, individualized program has been awarded continued status and funding for the 1975-76 year. The report gives an eight-page description of the leadership development program, a six-page description of the university's occupational education program, and a four-page description of the program evaluation. Approximately one-third of the documents is comprised of a list of personnel and the Fellows' vitae. (Author/AJ)
