McManis Associates, Inc., Washington, DC.
Part 1 of the project aimed at determining unmet vocational-technical education needs in the State of Maryland which might be met through residential education; Part 2 was designed to study the possible alternatives for meeting the needs discovered and to make recommendations regarding how these could best be met. A summary of Part 1 of the project is included in the report. The recommendations growing out of Part 2 focus on creating three residential vocational technical centers on existing community college campuses and assigning State and regional programs to these centers. The report delineates the recommended programs and the colleges to which they should be assigned, makes recommendations regarding residence halls, funding, and control, and includes a cost-benefit analysis. Additional recommendations relate to local councils or advisory groups, program publicity, counseling, professional associations, interstate compacts, and further studies. Appended are a copy of the questionnaire sent to private vocational technical schools, the results of the questionnaire, a copy of the needs-assessment memorandum sent to industrial and scientific firms in Maryland, results of the memorandum, communications relevant to the study, and a list of possible sources of Federal funds for various aspects of the residential programs.
