Through Assembly Bill 1820 (Vasconcellos, 1987) the Legislature directed the California Postsecondary Education Commission to report annually from 1988 to 1994 on the development, implementation, and operation of "Human Corps" programs of volunteer student service at the University of California and the California State University. This fourth report in the series reviews the origins of the Human Corps concept, discusses the Human Corps activities of the University and State University over the past year, and offers two recommendations on page 3 concerning future reporting requirements related to this program:

First, because of fiscal stringencies affecting the two segments as well as the State at large, and because data already exist to assess the progress made by the segments in expanding student participation in community service activities, the Commission recommends that;

  1. The University of California and the California State University shall not be required to conduct an interim survey of Human Corps participation in 1991, unless the State provides funding for such a survey.
  2. Second, because of the possibly costly nature of the final comprehensive evaluation of Human Corps activities due from the Commission in 1994, the Commission recommends that:
  3. Commission staff and representatives from the University and the State University shall meet with appropriate representatives of the Legislature to discuss future reports related to the Human Corps program, given the availability of State funding.
Attached to the report are documents from the State University and the University that describe Human Corps activities on the various campuses as well as overall student participation.

The Commission adopted this report at its meeting on April 28, 1991, on recommendation of its Policy Evaluation Committee.

Inquiries about Human Corps activities at the University of California may be directed to Suzanne Castillo-Robson, Director, Student Affairs and Services, Office of the President, at (415) 987-9554.

Inquiries about the California State University's activities may be addressed to Kathy Mahoney, Administrative Operations Analyst, Office of the Chancellor, at (213) 590-5866.
