Outreach Educational Activities of Title VI National Resource Centers in International Studies. A Study Report with Recommendations.
The study reports on university-based outreach activities to extend international studies, based on a mandate in Title VI of the Higher Education Act. A survey of Title VI centers in universities nationwide gathered information on the way the institutions organize, develop, implement, and evaluate their resources and their delivery to nontraditional constituencies. Using this information, successful outreach models are offered for consideration by the institutions and their Title VI centers. The report begins with a history of the centers, and goes on to discuss the concept of outreach in the context of this legislation. Study procedures are then described. Survey results are presented in 3 sections: (1) a summary of the structure, resources, and operations of the centers; (2) a description of client/user services, with comments and recommendations made by survey respondents; and (3) evaluation of the outreach materials used by the centers. General and specific recommendations for program improvement are made for the federal government, universities, and centers. Appended materials include: a tabulation of results from each of 75 centers surveyed; questionnaires used for center directors, client/users, and outreach coordinators; descriptions of outreach education materials evaluated for each center; key references; and addresses of study participants in the United States and other countries.
