SUPCE and SUREA: Publications and Resources for Educators of Adults.
Stubblefield, Harold W., Comp.
For the past two decades, Syracuse University has been publishing studies in adult and continuing education and collecting resources in those fields. This work has been collected through the Syracuse University Resources for Educators of Adults (SUREA) program and the Syracuse University Publications Program in Continuing Education (SUPCE). SUPCE was founded in 1968 to help meet the demonstrated demand for quality studies in the field of adult and continuing education. It was funded in 1972 by the Syracuse University, the Fund for Adult Education, and by a five-year grant from the Ford Foundation. SUPCE includes more than 300 publications, such as the following: publications of the Center for the Study of Liberal Education for Adults, Landmark and New Horizon series, William Pearson Tolley Medal series, the American Foundation for Continuing Education, and the International Handbook for Resources for Educators of Adults. SUPCE continues as a publisher of adult and continuing education materials and, in the future, will place emphasis on materials related to resources for educators of adults. SUREA is a university-wide program whose collections are now housed in the Ernest S. Bird Library. It began in the 1950s; through grants, the collection grew to include materials in a variety of formats: books, tapes, recordings, personal papers, photographs, pamphlets, periodicals, newsletters, and oral history. SUREA has formed the Associated Resource Centers in Adult Education to promote networks and cooperative relationships among adult education resource centers nationally and internationally, and this effort will continue in the future. (Information on obtaining materials from SUPCE and SUREA is included in the report.) (KC)
