Mount San Antonio Coll., Walnut, CA.
In an effort to improve community college home economics programs, the Chancellor's Office of the California Community Colleges established the Center for Consumer Home Economics Education (CCHEE) to provide support services for colleges receiving home economics MiniGrants, to establish linkages between colleges and the Chancellor's Office, and to offer assistance in bidding for MiniGrants and other funds. This report describes the goals and activities of the CCHEE project, and provides sample documents used in the project. Following introductory remarks and a project chronology, the report discusses the main objectives of the CCHEE project and provides a comparative list of anticipated and actual project outcomes. Next, the major activities undertaken during the project are discussed, focusing on pre-funding actions and post-funding actions related to project management, staffing and equipment of the Center office, processing and reporting MiniGrants, working with the InfoNet electronic network, and the development of program directories and a handbook. Finally, descriptions are provided of project dissemination and evaluation efforts. Appendixes making up half the document provide lists of project advisory committee personnel, MiniGrant application forms with instructions, a list of colleges funded from 1990 to 1994 and amounts funded in 1991-92, CCHEE facilitator guidelines for providing workshops and subject area discussion sessions, sample documentation from a workshop on InfoNet, a sample evaluation of a grant writing session, and a report on a workshop for project directors.
