ABSTRACT
The article discusses the offer and development of programs related to labor education in several universities and colleges in the U.S. The programs were developed after the University of Michigan Workers' Education Service, Ann Arbor was terminated because of several conflicts. The termination has raised questions as to where university labor education programs stand and where they are going. In the year 1948, the American Labor Education Service circularized all the universities and colleges that were included in its 1946 study and such others as were known to have established new programs since that time. An overview on the programs developed and offered by several universities is presented.
