Summary

The second year (1969-70) of the Program with Developing Institutions (PWDI) emphasized working with faculty members rather than with administrators (as in the first year) in the areas of faculty development and instructional improvement. Fifty-three junior colleges participated in this program, financed under Title III of the Higher Education Act of 1965 and sponsored by AAJC and USOE. The project was composed of: (1) Vincennes National Conference, which reviewed and set the tone for the whole project; (2) regional workshops and activities; (3) consultants sent to participating colleges to help assess their strengths, weaknesses, and potential; (4) specialized workshops as a response to needs for group consultation in federal affairs, computer use, and human affairs; and (5)"Salt" seminars, which focused on the systems approach to learning. The keynote of the program was decentralization, with some of the functions formerly performed by the central office placed in the hands of regional coordinators and the funded colleges. An important feature of this second-year project was the provision for colleges to encourage faculty personnel to make inter-campus visits and attend professional meetings on program funds. The results of evaluations of the second year of this continuing project by the participating colleges are included. The reader might want to consult the First Interim Report of PWDI (ED 032 070).
