Tennessee Univ., Knoxville. State Agency for Title I.
Title I of the Higher Education Act of 1965 was enacted by Congress to provide Federal funds to strengthen the community service capability of colleges and universities to assist the people in the solution of community problems, with particular emphasis on urban and suburban problems. Tennessee's major program emphases under Title I since 1972 have been (1) the Tennessee Statewide Consumer Education Program, a consortium of 9-15 institutions with one institution serving as statewide coordinator with the responsibility for developing materials and providing program assistance to the individual project segments and (2) the Community Growth Policy and Leadership Development program designed to foster leadership development of existing and potential community leaders and to broaden citizen and community participation in the decisionmaking process. The program priorities established for fiscal year 1977 are (1) Energy Education (50% of funding) and (2) Community Planning, Growth, and Leadership (50% of funding), the latter including government organization services, community organization services, and employment and career development. Rationale and long range goals for the statewide approach and specific objectives for each project category are outlined. Types of activities to be supported and methods of coordination with other programs are described. Statewide program and administrative budget totals are given with breakdown by Federal funds requested and matching funds expected from other sources. (WL)
