The Continuing Education of Women; Some Programs in the United States of America.
The Department of Adult Education of the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education is involved in a project to document programs and services in continuing education for women in other countries as a frame of reference for policies that would facilitate more adequate provision for such education in Canada. Included in this document are descriptions of selected programs in the United States chiefly concerned with occupational preparation or upgrading and largely in occupations traditionally considered female, with practically unanimous acceptance of the key role of counseling. Many programs involve research to evaluate program effectiveness and to determine equivalency of life experience and formal educational experience. Eighteen programs at colleges and universities are included, such as Barnard, Cornell, Oakland, Radcliffe, Sarah Lawrence, Syracuse, and Wisconsin. Five community college programs include Cuyahoga, Corning, and Hudson Valley. Also described are programs of the Council for the Continuing Education of Women (Miami, Florida), the National Council of Negro Women, New York State Guidance Center for Women, and Women's Talent Corps.
