History of Outreach in National Centers for Foreign Languages and International Studies.
Wiley, Marylee
Over the past decade, university-based outreach programs, established under the Title VI Higher Education Act in National Centers for Foreign Language and International Studies, have offered a variety of services to schools, community groups, the media, and other colleges and universities. Those outreach programs working in elementary and secondary education have focused on: (1) inservice teacher education; (2) evaluation and development of teaching materials; (3) planning overseas experiences for teachers and administrators; and (4) consultations with publishers. Funding for such programs is difficult to find, but private funding sources, federal grants, and user fees have been valuable financial support. The future of the program depends on strong and continued federal support. Recommendations, in the form of a long-range agenda for program directors and coordinators, are made for strengthening and improving outreach programs. Appended is a list of contacts in the National Resource Centers for: (1) Africa; (2) East Asia; (3) Inner Asia; (4) South Asia; (5) Southeast Asia; (6) Pacific Islands; (7) Canada; (8) East Europe and USSR; (9) Western Europe; (10) International Studies; (11) Latin America; and (12) Middle East.
