Moyer, Janis L.
A report on three regional conferences for educators and business representatives on the ways both groups can best serve the needs of liberal arts students is presented. The basic agendas of the conferences, which were sponsored by the Association of American Colleges, are outlined, and speakers participating in each category are listed. Excerpts of conference presentations by 14 corporate executives and recruiters from public and private organizations are also included. In addition, descriptive summaries of 40 campus-based programs linking liberal education with a career focus are provided. The programs of various colleges are categorized as follows: comprehensive programs with career emphases, new concepts in career guidance, faculty and executive involvement, internships and field studies, nontraditional students, and curricular innovations. An additional focal area of the conferences was hiring the liberal arts graduate. An address list of speakers and panelists is appended. (SW)
