SARAH LAWRENCE COLLEGE CENTER FOR CONTINUING EDUCATION AND COMMUNITY STUDIES. WORK IN PROGRESS REPORT III, DECEMBER, 1964--SEPTEMBER 1966.
LOEWENBERG, BERT J.
GRANTS FROM THE CARNEGIE CORPORATION HAVE ENABLED SARAH LAWRENCE COLLEGE CENTER FOR CONTINUING EDUCATION AND COMMUNITY STUDIES TO ESTABLISH A FLEXIBLE PROGRAM FOR WOMEN WHO WISH TO STUDY PART TIME TOWARD UNDERGRADUATE AND GRADUATE DEGREES AFTER BEING OUT OF SCHOOL FOR SEVERAL YEARS. PARTICIPANTS ARE CHOSEN BY INTERVIEW AFTER COMPLETING AN APPLICATION FORM AND PRESENTING TRANSCRIPTS. NO TESTS ARE USED. THROUGH COUNSELING, WOMEN ARE HELPED TO SELECT THE PROGRAM BEST SUITED TO THEIR GOALS, AT SARAH LAWRENCE OR ELSEWHERE. THE CENTER'S UNDERGRADUATE COURSES CARRY FIVE HOURS CREDIT, MEET ONCE A WEEK, AND REQUIRE 15 HOURS OF OUTSIDE WORK. EACH STUDENT HAS A BIWEEKLY TUTORIAL CONFERENCE. AFTER FOUR SEMESTER COURSES STUDENTS MAY BE ACCEPTED IN THE GENERAL COLLEGE PROGRAM. GRADUATE PROGRAMS ARE OFFERED AT SARAH LAWRENCE IN LIBERAL ARTS AND COLLEGE LEVEL TEACHING. IN COOPERATION WITH NEW YORK UNIVERSITY, THE CENTER HAS ESTABLISHED PART TIME MASTER'S PROGRAMS IN ELEMENTARY EDUCATION AND IN SOCIAL WORK, AND WITH PRATT INSTITUTE, IN LIBRARY SCIENCE. IN INDEPENDENT CONFERENCE STUDY AND THE INSTITUTE FOR COMMUNITY STUDIES, WOMEN CAN STUDY COMMUNITY PROBLEMS WHILE PROVIDING SUCH COMMUNITY SERVICES AS TUTORIAL PROGRAMS FOR UNDERACHIEVING CHILDREN.
