After a section outlining project costs, summary recommendations and conclusions are offered. The bulk of the report consists of appendices providing project personnel job descriptions and announcements; enrollment statistics for 1978 through 1981; student evaluations of the peer-tutoring program, developmental studies courses, and off-campus courses; reading course descriptions; instructions for writing book reviews; copies of educational resources bulletins and promotional brochures; a description of the self-exploratory career center; a recommended media policy; and suggested guidelines for entry into developmental studies courses.
