Miller, Lorna M., Ed.
This comprehensive volume of innovative continuing education programs contains complete descriptions of some 750 cross-indexed projects in four general areas--human resource development, natural resource development, economic development, and community development--directed at community problems that can benefit from adult education. It brings together summaries of recent (1979) continuing education activities funded by Title I, Higher Education Act, which were implemented in all fifty states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands. A table of contents and state index facilitate selection of community service and continuing education activities by program categories, clientele, and geographic areas. Exemplary projects, as designated by the Title I State Administrators, have also been identified. The format for each abstract is as follows: project title; duration; participants; number served; project summary; methods and resources; institutionalization, spin offs, and future plans; materials developed; project director and address; and Title I Higher Education Act State Administrator.
