Study of R&D Strengths of AEL Member Institutions of Higher Education.
Sanders, Jack; Slack, Marilyn
Results of a 1979 survey of colleges belonging to the Appalachia Educational Laboratory (AEL) are presented. Objectives were to develop a file of general information about each higher education institution represented on AEL's Board of Directors, and to identify areas of particular academic strength represented in these institutions. The information was to be used to promote consultation services among the region's educators. Profiles are presented for each of the following institutions: Jacksonville State University, University of Kentucky, Ohio University, Muskingum College, California State College, West Virginia State College, and West Virginia University. Information is provided for each college on well-staffed areas for which consultation services are available. The following divisions/departments are covered for each college: curriculum/instruction at the elementary and secondary policy, and secondary levels, guidance and counseling, educational administration, educational policy, and educational research. In addition, for Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, information is provided on staffing competencies in several fields, including administration and vocational-technical education. Information is also provided on publications regularly issued for each school, and descriptions of college projects are included. A questionnaire is appended. (SW)
