On the Road to Economic Development: A Guide for Continuing Education Programs at Historically Black Colleges and Universities.
Richmond, Peggy A.; Maramark, Sheilah
This guide is designed to provide information, advice, and programming strategies that historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) might use to enhance the involvement of their continuing education programs with community economic development. It includes a review of the literature on successful higher education-economic development initiatives, and highlights promising practices and innovative program elements that were found through a survey of nine HBCUs, including Tennessee State University, Fayetteville State University (North Carolina), Florida A & M University, Spelman College (Georgia), South Carolina State University, the University of the District of Columbia, Delaware State University, Hampton University (Virginia), and Texas Southern University. The guide offers a model for developing continuing education programs that contribute to community economic development, and addresses the implications of the model for each of the stakeholder groups that is likely to be involved with the implementation. Two appendixes provide National Center for Education Statistics data on HBCUs and institutional selection criteria for the study. (Contains 35 references.) (MDM)
