Liberal Education for Adults. The Forum for Liberal Education. October 1978.
Mohrman, Kathryn, Ed.
This bulletin focuses on liberal education for adults and includes an article on the topic and descriptions of seven institutional approaches. In "Creating Successful Liberal Education Programs for Adults," Carol Stoel points out that many adults are seeking a greater understanding of themselves and their world through liberal education programs. The following liberal education programs for adults are described: George Washington University's Continuing Education for Women program, Stephens College's Without Walls program, California State University at Long Beach's Adult Reentry Counseling program, Wesleyan University's Master of Arts program in liberal studies, Indiana University at Kokomo's External Degree Program/Project Outreach, Bunker Hill Community College's Open College Program, and the College of New Rochelle's School of New Resources. The programs range from providing counseling for enrollment in regular campus activities to providing academic credentials for learning opportunities offered by community organizations. Programs at other institutions that have been successful in meeting the educational needs of adults also are listed, and an annotated bibliography provides suggestions to readers seeking further information.
