Serving the Rural Adult: Directory of Consultants for Rural Adult Postsecondary Education.
Spears, Jacqueline D.
This directory of consultants is intended to provide a reference tool to rural educators seeking advice and assistance in adapting existing programs or building new programs to serve the rural adult. Introductory material notes that the process used to locate these professionals included a national survey of rural model programs conducted by the Western Interstate Commission on Higher Education, a letter of invitation distributed nationally through a number of education networks, and suggestions made by acknowledged leaders in the field of rural adult postsecondary education. The directory includes 95 consultant profiles arranged alphabetically. Each profile includes the consultant's name and address; a brief summary of his/her program, topics of expertise and experiences; more specific information on consulting expertise in evaluation, legislation, and program development; and general information on availability, costs, style(s) of presentation, preferred audience, and group size. The profiles are not comprehensive, but are intended to provide the reader with enough information to pursue further contact. Consultant profiles are indexed alphabetically, by representing organization, and by geographical location. Thirty-seven states and Puerto Rico are represented. An appendix with a copy of the Resource Consultant Form and an evaluation form for the directory conclude the document. (Author/BRR)
