Problems of Administrative Change in Selected Programs for the Reeducation of Women.
Addis, Margaret Emily
Nine educational institutions were studied through visits and interviews to find out their problems in the creation of programs for the reeducation of women. Six were in the East and three in the Midwest; they included public and private universities, technical and liberal arts colleges for women, residential and nonresidential, large and small. Though no problems were common to all, they were in the five major areas of resources, curriculum and instruction, administrative attitudes, faculty reactions, and student diversity, characteristics, and impact on undergraduates. Problems which could be inferred included personnel, objectives and expectations, and procedural techniques. A lack of sustained interest in the program at the initiating level seemed a reliable predictor of subsequent problems and it appeared that execution of plans should remain with those who did the original planning. There is need for more information about special students, for special academic orientation and personal readjustment information for them, an internal and external (publicity) communication system, and for emphasis on the academic integrity of the program.
