The article presents information on some of the operations undertaken by the Industrial Relations Center of the Iowa State University of Science and Technology. It is heavily supported by a three-year manpower institutional grant awarded by the U. S. Department of Labor's Office of Manpower Policy. A unique feature of the Center's research and teaching function is a cooperative arrangement with colleges and universities in a six-state region. Major research has been launched in health manpower, job vacancy studies, leadership-managerial behavior and special studies are under way on the decision-making process involved in entry into and withdrawal from the labor force. Professor Edward Jakubauskas is continuing research on the development of a system of national manpower accounts under a grant from the Iowa State University Foundation. The Industrial Relations Center has been cooperating closely with state and local action-agencies in the development of a statewide Manpower Information Committee to assist the emerging area vocational schools in developing training programs and curricula in relation to emerging employment needs of Iowa's employers and career interests of new labor force entrants.
