A SURVEY OF "SPECIAL" EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS FOR ADULT WOMEN IN UNIVERSITY EXTENSION DIVISIONS AND EVENING COLLEGES.
LORING, ROSALIND KOLAN
TO DISCOVER TRENDS AND INNOVATIONS IN SPECIAL PROGRAMS FOR MATURE WOMEN OFFERED BY UNIVERSITY EXTENSION DIVISIONS AND EVENING COLLEGES, QUESTIONNAIRES WERE SENT TO 216 INSTITUTIONS (157 RESPONDED) AND AN INTERVIEW SCHEDULE WAS USED IN PERSONAL VISITS TO FIVE INSTITUTIONS. OF THE 157 SCHOOLS, 93 SCHEDULED PROGRAMS FOR ADULT WOMEN RANGING FROM COLLEGE CREDIT AND NONCREDIT LIBERAL ARTS DAYTIME COURSES TO SPECIALLY DESIGNED COURSES DEEMED OF INTEREST TO WOMEN, ACTIVITIES CONCENTRATING ON THE STATUS OF WOMEN TODAY, AND TO THE LARGEST CATEGORY OF OCCUPATIONAL IMPROVEMENT. INDIVIDUAL AND GROUP COUNSELING WAS USUALLY AVAILALBE, BUT PROGRAM RESEARCH WAS NOT PART OF ANY LISTED PROGRAM. ENROLLEES WERE CAUCASIAN, MIDDLE CLASS SOCIALLY AND ECONOMICALLY, WITH COLLEGE AND COMMUNITY ORGANIZATION EXPERIENCE. ALTHOUGH THE ENROLLMENT VARIED FROM 50 TO 1,000 PER YEAR, NO PROGRAM WAS ENTIRELY SELF-SUPPORTING NOR COMPLETELY SUBSIDIZED. ALL KINDS OF PROMOTION WERE USED, BUT THE PRINTED ANNOUNCEMENT AND WORD OF MOUTH WERE MOST DEPENDED UPON. PROGRAM MATERIALS WERE PRIMARILY WRITTEN, AND DESIGNED OR COLLECTED FOR THE SPECIFIC PROJECT.
