A History of Changing Patterns of Objectives in Catholic Higher Education for Women in Michigan.
Henning, Gabrielle, Sister
The purpose of this research was to trace the history of changing patterns of objectives in six Catholic women's colleges in Michigan. A number of hypotheses were generated and evaluated. All the hypotheses, except one, were supported by the data. The hypothesis, that Catholic colleges for women in Michigan have, from their foundations, included the objective of training for leadership, could not be supported by the available evidence. It was observed that the six colleges have followed clearly observable "patterns" or "similarities of design" in their statements of objectives through the years. The following objectives: commitment to a Catholic philosophy of education, an intellectual objective, a moral objective, a service objective, a professional objective, and an institution's relationship and responsibility to the community and to humanity objective appeared in all statements of objectives consistently in all the colleges.
