Career Education in Community Colleges: Sourcebook II.
American Association of Community and Junior Colleges, Washington, DC.
This two-part sourcebook presents an overview of career education services as revealed by a survey of member institutions of the American Association of Community and Junior Colleges and profiles the career education activities of 80 institutions in 33 states. Part I outlines the survey findings in relation to: (1) the availability of eight career education program components (i.e., career resource center, collaboration with community and feeder schools, career change services, work experience opportunities, career infusion in liberal arts, career education staff development, and breaking career stereotypes); (2) the availability of 16 specific career services to students; (3) the types of populations served and their needs; (4) the outside groups used by the colleges in their career programs; (5) the career education programs available for college staff; and (6) the types of outside assistance these colleges need to maintain their programs. The program profiles presented in Part II provide general college information, including location, enrollment, and student characteristics; career program information, such as populations served, number of staff, date established, the availability of program-developed materials and information and assistance, and the names of contact persons; and a brief narrative describing the program.
