Businessperson-in-Residence: One of a Series of Guides for Planning and Operating a Corporate/College Project.
Council on Corporate/College Communications, Washington, DC.
The Businessperson-in-Residence program at Trenton State College in New Jersey is described. It is a four-part program designed to build better long-term relationships between the college and business community. The overall program was planned by a joint business-college task force to meet mutual objectives. The businessperson, working out of a campus office one day a week, provides program continuity and ready access to students and faculty. The businessperson is the facilitator for three major projects. These include: (1) a course for nonbusiness undergraduates to help students understand how business operates; (2) a directory of business and industry resources for educators; and (3) mini-internships in a business or profession related to a student's career or academic interests. The businessperson-in-residence also acts as the liaison between the college and business as new problems of needs arise. Appended are a course outline, objectives, content, and plan for Understanding American Business; a Mercer County (New Jersey) Career Education Resources Directory, as well as the proposal for a businessperson-in-residence program at Trenton State College.
