SCHLETZER, VERA M.; AND OTHERS
AS A PILOT PROJECT SUPPORTED BY THE CARNEGIE CORPORATION, THE WOMEN'S CONTINUING EDUCATION PROGRAM OF THE UNIVERSITY OF MINNESOTA (MINNESOTA PLAN) HAS BEEN PROVIDING, FOR OVER 5 YEARS, THE FLEXIBLE ARRANGEMENTS NEEDED BY WOMEN WISHING TO CONTINUE THEIR EDUCATION, FOR ACCOMMODATING THE RESOURCES OF THE UNIVERSITY TO THEIR NEEDS AND OBJECTIVES. THE MORE THAN 2,600 WOMEN ENROLLED ARE MOSTLY IN THEIR 30'S AND EARLY 40'S, ARE MARRIED, HAVE CHILDREN, ARE FROM THE MIDDLE CLASS, HAVE METROPOLITAN FAMILIES, HAVE LESS THAN 4 YEARS OF COLLEGE, AND ARE INTERESTED IN TRAINING FOR VOCATIONS. FEATURES OF THE PLAN INCLUDE EXPERIMENTAL LIBERAL ARTS SEMINARS, A PLACEMENT SERVICE, A CHILD CARE CENTER, EXTENSIVE COUNSELING, SMALL SCHOLARSHIPS, AND UNDERGRADUATE AND COMMUNICATIONS PROGRAMS. THE PLAN REVEALS THE NEED FOR REEVALUATION OF TRADITIONAL UNIVERSITY REGULATIONS, COURSE OFFERINGS, AND GUIDANCE PROGRAMS, AND FOR AN INCREASED WILLINGNESS BY AMERICAN SOCIETY TO USE ITS RESOURCES OF ABLE AND EDUCATED WOMEN.
