Programs, Problems and Needs in Women's Continuing Education; Proceedings of a Statewide Conference for Institutions of Higher Education, Community and Government Representatives (Seattle, Washington, November 8, 1968).
Washington Univ., Seattle. Office of Women's Continuing Education.
A conference on women's continuing education explored ways in which institutions of higher education in the State of Washington can develop innovative programs to meet the needs of women, particularly those in their middle years. Exploration involved (1) identifying the communities' needs for more effective use of woman power, both paid and volunteer; (2) defining steps which must be taken to expand opportunities for women; (3) providing information on programs which are in process in various states; (4) discussing ways in which all educational institutions can work together to implement new and relevant programs for women; and (5) planning for interinstitutional and interdisciplinary cooperation. Descriptions were given of the College Level Examination Program, Eastern Washington State College Continuing Education for Women, and the educational program at Oak Harbor Naval Air Station. (nl)
