Abstract

In the midst of an atmosphere of industrial growth, a low unemployment rate, and the establishment of a system of area schools in Iowa, there was a need for a central source of concern, interest, initiative, coordination, and information on occupational research as related to vocational-technical education planning. The RCU was established with federal support for a period of eighteen months in June 1965 to fulfill this need. The Unit was provided with federal support for continuation in December 1966. This summary reflects operation of the RCU during the latter period. The Unit initiates activity to stimulate, encourage, and coordinate statewide research on employment opportunities, human resources, and educational resources development as a base for the planning and development of vocational curricula, staff, and facilities. The RCU staff has not conducted research projects; rather, it has been a coordinating group in the Vocational Education Branch providing consultative services on occupational problems.
