LLOYD, BETTY JANE
CONFERENCE OBJECTIVES WERE THREEFOLD--(1) THE PREPARATION OF PLANS TO REACH THE UNDERGRADUATE WOMAN AND MOTIVATE HER TO PLAN REALISTICALLY FOR COMBINING FAMILY AND WORK IN THE SUCCESSIVE PHASES OF HER LIFE, (2) THE DEVELOPMENT OF A MECHANISM FOR CATALOGING EXISTING PART-TIME COURSES ON CAMPUS AND EXISTING MATERIALS FOR HOME USE SO THAT THIS INFORMATION CAN BE DISSEMINATED FOR INSTITUTION DEVELOPMENT OF EXPERIMENTAL MATERIALS AND COURSES, AND (3) PROCEDURE DESIGN FOR INCORPORATING IN THE PLACEMENT OFFICES THREE PILOT COLLEGE VOCATIONAL ADVISERS. CONFERENCE DISCUSSION GROUPS WERE FORMED TO REVIEW THE LATEST THINKING FROM 50 INSTITUTIONS CONCERNING THESE PROBLEMS. MAJOR FINDINGS WERE (1) ON-CAMPUS ADMINISTRATIVE AND ACADEMIC EFFORTS SHOULD BE CONDUCTED TO REACH AND MOTIVATE THE UNDERGRADUATE IN LIBERAL ARTS, (2) ON- AND OFF-CAMPUS EFFORTS SHOULD BE PLANNED AND IMPLEMENTED TO OFFER INTELLECTUAL STIMULATION AND DIRECTION TO GRADUATES DURING THE EARLY "FAMILY YEARS," (3) CONTINUING EDUCATION FOR CREDIT SHOULD BE OFFERED IN OFF-CAMPUS COURSES, (4) CONTINUING EDUCATION FOR CREDIT SHOULD BE OFFERED ON CAMPUS AND IN EXTENSION PROGRAMS, (5) A COUNSELING SERVICE SHOULD INCLUDE CONTINUED COUNSELING IN THE ACADEMIC AND VOCATIONAL REALM AS WELL AS A RECIPROCAL PLACEMENT SERVICE, AND (6) A CLEARINGHOUSE OPERATION SHOULD BE ESTABLISHED FOR COMMUNICATION BETWEEN INSTITUTIONS IN THE DISSEMINATIONS OF INFORMATION.
