Personal and Family Financial Planning: Perspectives on Community College Programs.
Leo, Robert J.; And Others
After a brief summary of the findings of a 1979 study of Personal and Family Financial Planning (PFFP) programs at member institutions of the League for Innovation in the Community College (LICC), this two-part monograph provides information on selected PFFP programs. Part I presents in-depth descriptions of the implementation, subject coverage, and evaluation of seven PFFP programs or courses: (1) a comprehensive financial planning program at Central Piedmont Community College (NC) which includes a 19-module consumer education course; (2) a course in personal finance at Brookdale Community College (NJ) which covers family budgeting, credit, insurance, investment, and estate planning; (3) a radio course in macro-economics which is broadcast in 34, five-minute segments over a 17-week period by Moraine Valley Community College (IL); (4) a telecourse in consumer education offered by Lane Community College (OR); (5) a transfer curriculum in home economics offered by Johnson County Community College (KS); (6) a support program established by Delta College (MI) to teach confidence-building techniques and financial planning to displaced homemakers; and (7) a vocational counseling program at Brookhaven College (TX) which integrates PFFP with career counseling. Part II presents short outlines of other programs and courses. A list of credit and non-credit courses offered by LICC members concludes the monograph. (JP)
