This report profiles the Adult Career Counseling Center (ACCC) at Oakland University, Michigan. Conceived in 1982, the Center provides services for adults seeking career guidance. The ACCC supplies career information, counseling, advice in preparation and interviewing skills, and referral information, all at no charge. The ACCC employed computers for career development from the beginning and included in this guide is a description of the three computer-assisted career guidance systems currently in use: (1) DISCOVER for Colleges and Adults; (2) System of Interactive Guidance and Information Plus (SIGI PLUS); and (3) Michigan Occupational Information System (MOIS). Client demographics are furnished via charts and graphs and are broken down by gender. The center's performance was assessed through exit forms and case studies. Through public relations, in-service training, and coordination with other service centers, the ACCC sought to increase its visibility in the community. Included are research results on career development, the research for which was conducted on site. The overview closes with plans for improving services at the ACCC. Two appendices summarize information on a sister counseling center and on grant-supported services for the ACCC. (RJM)
