An overview is provided of the Human Resources Development (HRD) program in the North Carolina Community College System, focusing on trend data and program achievements for 1992-93. The first section of the report traces the growth of systemwide HRD activities from 1970, when a pilot program offering basic pre-job training was implemented at Lenoir Community College, to the present. The next section provides an outline of the "core" curriculum of HRD training, which includes an assessment of individual assets and limitations and the development of positive self-concept, interpersonal skills, motivation, and goal-setting skills; listening and oral communication skills; problem-solving skills; and various employability skills. Next, information is provided on recruitment, enrollment, and HRD students, indicating that since 1975, 94,278 students have enrolled in HRD programs with enrollments currently averaging 5,237 per year. Enrollment data and information on the ethnicity and gender of HRD students are then provided for 1975 to 1992. The next section focuses on placements and student tracking, reporting that: (1) since 1975, more than 31,580 graduates have gained employment after completing the program, with 1,958 HRD students successfully finding employment in 1992-93; (2) in the past 18 years, 20,404 HRD students moved into vocational, technical, or occupational skills training; and (3) HRD programs provided follow-up services to 64,698 graduates between 1975 and 1992, with 6,191 1991-92 graduates receiving follow-up counseling and placement assistance in 1992-93.
