Ackler, Eugene J., Jr., Ed.; Booth, Glenna M., Ed.
Ten papers focus on the College for Living Project at Metropolitan State College in Denver, Colorado, a multidisciplinary approach to education for adults with developmental disabilities. The document begins with a review of the project's formation, noting the cooperation of college faculty and administrators. Subsequent papers comment upon the program's instruction in "thriving skills," ideas found successful in fundraising, volunteer selection and training, curriculum development for adults with developmental disabilities, procedures for program evaluation, publicity, and the support of community groups and individuals. A final paper summarizes the program's accomplishments in the context of developments in human services for the handicapped. A list of other College for Living Projects as of October 1979 concludes the document. (CL)
