The Comprehensive Career Education Project was conducted to develop a comprehensive career education model for northern Maine. The objectives focused on infusion in grades K-12 of the Bangor Public School System and continued training of postsecondary instructional staff at the University of Maine at Orono and Husson College. This document reports the university-level activities. An eight-session seminar series for twenty university faculty was planned and conducted. Eight faculty members were selected to write twenty-six career education instructional units that could be utilized in a variety of college-level courses. (These units are included in the ERIC system as ED 143 814 and ED 166 365-366.) The project staff prepared a set of inservice training materials for use in postsecondary institutions. Finally, a business and industry advisory group was selected to participate as a panel in the seminar series and to assist the writing team. Plans were made to evaluate the seminar series, career education instructional units, and the training materials. (The majority of this document contains  selection and orientation materials;  a description of the seminar series, including topics, procedures, and incremental improvements; and  sample guidelines, format, contract, and review procedures used in writing the career education instructional units.)
