If the program is judged on the basis of where its product is employed, it would appear that the Southern Regional Training Program has been successful in attracting students to the South, in placing these fellows in governmental positions, and in keeping most of them in the state and local government in the region. Sixty-one percent of the graduates of the program are still in the South and 71 percent are still in government or government-related positions even after 36 years. In addition, 70 percent of all those who went into government are still in positions at either the state or local level. This is a substantial record in overall terms and it becomes even more impressive if the current positions of its graduates and their influence on southern public administration over more than a quarter of a century are taken into account.
