Sixty profiles are presented that demonstrate actual contracting in practice between organizations and colleges for the provision of instruction to employees, clients, or members. The objective is to assist colleges in the early stages of developing such arrangements, as well as to guide organizations that are considering this approach. Contracts are described that have involved two-year, four-year, public, and private colleges, as well as a broad mix of businesses and industries, government agencies, and voluntary associations. Each profile outlines the type of student who has attended, course content, schedule, methods and faculty members used, location, college and organization services, contract charges, evaluation, and certification, and provides a contact at the participant school. The first section of profiles, contracts with business/industry, describe job-specific and company-specific training, as well as academic, scientific, and enrichment programs. The second section of profiles, contracts with government and voluntary associations, describes programs addressing the employment needs of local governments, state governments, the federal government, the United States Armed Forces, religious groups, minority groups, special-interest groups, and unions.
