CHAPTER 10 UNIVERSITIES EMPHASIZING IN-SERVICE TRAINING

THE PUBLIC SERVICE training programs at the University of Southern California, American University, Wayne University, and New York University emphasized in-service training. These institutions, situated in metropolitan centers in which large numbers of public employees were concentrated, recognized a need and were attempting to meet it. Classes were held in the late afternoon, in the evening, and on Saturdays for persons already in the public service. Instruction was given in a wide range of subjects, and teachers were drawn from the ranks of public officials as well as from the university faculty. These institutions were also engaged in pre-entry training for the public service, but that activity was secondary in importance, quantitatively, to the in-service training.


THE UNIVERSITY OF SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA

Organization for Training

Public service training was an important function of the School of Government at the University of Southern California, operating under its own dean, Emery E. Olson, responsible directly to the president of the university. There was also a faculty advisory committee consisting of the dean of the School of Government, chairman, and the deans and chairmen of some ten other schools and departments.1 From twenty- five to thirty of the faculty were drawn from the teaching departments of the university--engineering, political science, sociology, economics, finance, management. Only the dean and one or two others of professorial rank were not also on the faculty of another department. A much larger group of faculty members consisted of persons with the status of lecturer who taught one or two highly specialized or technical courses. Nearly all these lecturers, about forty in number, were public officials in the Los Angeles area. The largest number were employees of the city of Los Angeles or of Los Angeles County. A few were businessmen.
