WSSU Receives HUD Grant
Mr. H. R. Crawford, Assistant
Secretary of Housing
Management for the Department
of Housing and Urban
Development has announced
grants in excess of $1 million
dollars for two Winston-Salem
housing developments (Happy
Hill Gardens and Kimberly
Park) and Winston-Salem State
University. The two Housing
Authority grants are expected to
upgrade and revitalize the public
housing projects by providing
opportunities for jobs.
The $135,000 grant to WSSU will
fund a curriculum in housing
management for the first of a
two-year program. The
curriculum addresses the
professional needs of housing
managers who seek a degree,
either as full-time or part-time
students, and alternatives are
provided for those students not
seeking degrees. Field based
experimental learning is
provided through a cooperative
agreement entered into between
the University and the Winston-
Salem Housing Authority.
In September, 1974 the
Department of Housing and
Urban Development requested
that Winston-Salem State submit
a proposal for the design and
implementation of a college
curriculum in housing
management. Dr. Ukaonu Uche,
Dr. Marlene Simpson and Dr.
William Rice utilized the input of
an advisory task force and
faculty members to develop the
final detailed proposal and
methodology for such a
curriculum. Program Year I will
be funded through the grant from
HUD; while the funding of
Program Year H is contingent
upon the evaluation of Program
Year I.
The Advisory Board for the
program is made up of WSSU
faculty, representatives from the
Winston-Salem Housing
Authority and other housing
professionals in the Piedmont
area including those from low
and medium income
government-assisted housing
projects and private sectors, and
HUD staff to assist the
University with its overall
program development in Housing
Management. This includes
liaison with housing
organizations, curricula
development and
recommendation, and approving
criteria for assessing the
performance requirements of
experimental learning activities.
The overall program is
intended to develop and test
delivery systems for housing
management training throughout
the country utilizing Winston-
Salem State University as a base,
expanding curricula and
developing specialized institutes,
workshops and courses at all
levels of college and university
work.
On accepting the grant on
behalf of the University, Dr.
Williams stated that he was
grateful and that this grant
provided an opportunity for the
University to extend its services
into the community with a
program that should be
beneficial to the community.
