Title I, Higher Education Act Program Abstracts.
Miller, Lorna M., Ed.
The 1979 edition of the Title I, Higher Education Act Program Abstracts is presented. Directed toward state Title I, HEA administrators, the program abstracts are made available in order to encourage nationwide program replication of those tested and evaluated programs that have been conducted with Title I support by institutions of higher education throughout the U.S. The volume is also designed to develop linkages between faculty of institutions of higher education who have expertise in the subject areas represented by these abstracts and the staff and leaders of public and private agencies who are looking for innovative program ideas. The abstracts are divided into four sections. Section I on Human Resource Development includes programs on: family; handicapped; older adults; minority issues; women; consumer issues; legal issues; career counseling; educational counseling; and human resources education. In Section II, Natural Resource Development, programs deal with: environment; land use; water; and rural, urban, regional planning. Section III on Economic Development reports programs on: business; employment; housing; and transportation. In Section IV, Community Development, the programs cover: citizen participation; government official training; neighborhood revitalization; community health; and cultural development. Each sub-topic contains several individual projects (e.g., "Family" contains reports on contemporary parenting, adolescent sexuality, and child abuse). The abstracts report project title; participants; project summary; methods; institutionalization, spin offs, and future plans; materials developed; and the project director's name and address. (LC)
