Continuing Education for Women in Ohio; A Study Project of the Ohio Division, American Association of University Women.
Ewalt, Della C., Comp.
A study was made to assess the needs and opportunities of members of the American Association of University Women (AAUW) to continue their education in Ohio. Questionnaires were returned by 2,569 AAUW members from Ohio branches giving data on personal and socioeconomic background, educational motivation, preferred kinds of programs and fields of study and felt needs for guidance and counseling. There was also a tabulation of information from Ohio colleges and universities as to women faculty members (21%), women administrators and trustees (much fewer), degrees granted to women in 1964, graduate and undergraduate enrollment data, and institutional policy. The typical AAUW respondent was in the 30-60 age range, with a family income of $5-10,000, employment in education, a husband in one of the professions, a desire for part-time or evening graduate study, and no felt need for guidance or counseling. Most institutions accepted part-time students, 22 offered higher adult education, some had financial aid for part-time students, and eight had special programs for women. Also, beginning in academic year 1966-67, the state wide College Faculty Program will offer financial aid to mature women wishing to prepare for college or university teaching. (ly)
