Carter, Larry G.; And Others
With funding from a $5.7 million state grant, Jersey City State College (New Jersey) undertook a comprehensive plan to become the premier cooperative education school in the state by offering inner-city, nontraditional students a program integrating an applied learning experience in all academic disciplines and expanded professional placement. The six major program components include: (1) faculty preparation and development; (2) curriculum revision; (3) support services; (4) outreach, including fund raising and recruitment; (5) renovation of existing facilities and construction of a dormitory; and (6) data collection and program evaluation. The report describes the program's development and organization, and chronicles the evaluation process and its results. Also included is information on the College advertising plan, the development of a management information system, and student outcomes. Observations are made on the accomplishment of program objectives, and some recommendations for improvement are offered. Appendixes cover administrative structure, sequence of activities, and the outside review panel report. (MSE)
