Continuing Education Programs and Services for Women.
Wells, Jean A.
This report lists nearly 450 continuing education programs for women, which were in operation in early 1971. The rising interest of mature women in returning to college is related to a desire to understand the complexities of modern life, as well as to the realization that additional education can provide them with job skills that are useful. The six appendixes of the report contain detailed information relating to programs or services for adult women. Appendix A, Schools with Special Programs or Services for Adult Women, by State, contains a partial list of colleges and universities with continuing education programs or special educational services designed primarily for adult women, totaling 376 programs. In Appendix B, Related Services or Programs for Adult Women, by State, a partial list is given of miscellaneous organizations that offer related services or programs designed primarily for adult women, totaling 60 organizations. Appendix C, Guide to Selected Features of Programs and Services Reported, provides an index to miscellaneous types of program features by colleges, universities, or other organizations mentioned in Appendixes A and B. Appendix D contains a list, supplied by the Office of Education, of Federal funds for continuing education programs, by state, for years ending June 30, 1966, 1967, 1968, 1969 and 1970. Appendix E provides Questions for Program Planners. (DB)
