Resources for Change: A Guide to Projects, 1978-79.
Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education (DHEW), Washington, DC.
Descriptions are provided of the 175 projects supported by the Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education in 1978-79. The projects address the broad range of educational needs represented in the proposals submitted to the Fund's Comprehensive Program. About half the projects are newly funded, and half are renewals. Project descriptions are listed alphabetically and by the eight problem areas that comprise the Comprehensive Program. The problem areas are: (1) extending effective educational opportunity to those still not adequately served by the system; (2) meeting individual needs in a mass system; (3) improving programs, personnel, and instruction for more effective education; (4) creating and applying more meaningful criteria for the award of postsecondary credentials; (5) reducing costs and stretching the educational dollar; (6) making better use of educational resources beyond colleges and universities; (7) helping people make better choices about whether, when, and where to enroll for education beyond high school; and (8) preserving institutional vitality in the face of growing rigidity and regulation. The project descriptions were written chiefly by the project directors. (SW)
