College/Business Activities Report.
This report presents findings of a survey of postsecondary educational institutions in Maryland concerning their efforts to provide specialized education and training programs for employees of Maryland businesses. All 16 community public colleges, 12 public four-year campuses, 13 independent institutions, and one private career school responded to the survey. The study found an impressive number and variety of cooperative activities in Maryland's postsecondary institutions and the business community. Institutions provided information about their activities in the following areas: (1) partnerships between business/industry and postsecondary institutions designed to provide specialized educational and training programs for employees; (2) customized job training or education programs for workers; (3) special programs, including the use of vouchers, specifically designed to help displaced workers or welfare recipients; and (4) short-term collaborative ventures between business/industry and postsecondary educational institutions. Following a summary chapter, chapters describe activities of community colleges, public four-year colleges and universities, independent colleges and universities, private career schools, and advanced technology centers. A summary table shows the types of joint activities reported for each institution. (DB)
