Grant Proposals [series]

The Grant Proposals series contains funded as well as un-funded proposals. The proposal descriptions offer a good overview of ETP projects, their goals, objectives, and accomplishments. These proposals are also meant to give the researcher an idea of what types of unemployment studies granting institutions were funding and not funding during the 1980s and 1990s.

Publications [series]

Directors Gordus and Toronto were extremely prolific. As a result, the Publications series contains many articles documenting the findings and progress of the Life/Education Planning Program (L/EPP) from a number of different social welfare perspectives. It also contains Life Education Advisors (LEA) training manuals and, at the end of the series, a nearly complete run of LEA newsletters. Also included are relevant reports and articles, authored by Jeanne Gordus, that pre-date the ETP altogether. Finally, the series contains documentation of a few smaller projects that took place concurrently with the L/EPP, such as a telephone survey of the educational wants and needs of employees in a Cadillac plant. Publications are arranged alphabetically by year, with undated materials at the end of the series.
