Adult Access to Education and New Careers: A Handbook for Action.
Aslanian, Carol B.; Schmelter, Harvey B., Ed.
In an effort to help colleges and universities meet the needs of the growing portion of the adult American population seeking postsecondary education, this handbook provides guidelines for the establishment of adult career centers. Although not prescribing a single model or instructing in counseling techniques, the handbook defines overall goals and objectives, provides a framework for planning, generates ideas, identifies choices, indicates strategies and sequences that have worked for others, and suggests practical solutions to common problems. Eight chapters address these areas: (1) objectives; (2) services and methods for offering them; (3) career materials collection planning and accumulation; (4) facilities planning (including a floor plan of an existing center); (5) planning and selection of staff; (6) finance, and the integration of budget and program planning; (7) marketing goals and methods; and (8) program evaluation. Sample checklists, reports, outlines, and budgets are included throughout. (MSE)
