Directory of Economic Development Programs at State Colleges and Universities.
American Association of State Colleges and Universities, Washington, DC.
A directory describing some of the economic development outreach programs currently administered by colleges and universities is presented with detailed descriptions of examples of the current wide variety of economic development activities. Listings for 382 programs at 170 public higher education institutions nationwide are provided, based on data from a 1987 mail survey of all presidents, chancellors, and system heads of member institutions of the American Association of State Colleges and Universities and the National Association of Land-Grant Colleges. Programs included had to meet the following criteria: permanence, have economic development as the primary objective with some form of community or regional outreach, and a maximum of 10 program listings per institution. The four main categories are multiple services for general audiences, multiple services for specific audiences, specific services for specific audiences, and specific services for general audiences. Programs are listed alphabetically by state and include such information as description (i.e., goals, activities, innovations, audience), structure (i.e., staffing, advisory board, funding), future plans, advice, products (i.e., publications and awards), and contact persons. Two indices list programs by objective and by state. (SM)
