American Association of Community and Junior Colleges, Washington, DC.
Sixty-six community college career education programs in 30 states are described in this sourcebook. The data is based on a national survey conducted by the American Association of Community and Junior Colleges. Descriptions include location, enrollment, type of geographical area (e.g., rural, suburban), and characteristics of the student population for each college. Specific program information includes program title, population served, number of people responsible for conducting the program, when and how the program was established, list of program-developed materials, availability of information and assistance, contact person at the college, and a narrative description of the program. The sourcebook is prefaced by a reprint of Kenneth Hoyt's "A Primer for Career Education" which outlines the basic nature of the career education effort as viewed by the United States Office of Education's Office of Career Education. A bibliography is included with the primer. An appendix to the document contains the survey instrument. (MB)
