A New Program for Married Students.
Moore, Marv; Hinkle, John E.
The lack of attention to the student marriage relationship and its impact is documented and guidelines for an outreach program involving married students are presented. Objectives of such a program include: (1) to study student marriages and define more clearly the psychological variables that constitute a growing, healthy marriage, and (2) to discover ways that married students may increasingly become their own growth facilitators, within both the marriage relationship and the larger married student culture. Several projects are now in progress to implement these goals. The first is a ten-week experimental seminar group, conducted with five normal couples residing in married housing. An Interest Opinion survey was also conducted among all residents of married student housing. The survey was concerned with housing, social organizations, and social activities. Thirdly, about 40 couples agreed to be interviewed about their experiences as married students. Fourthly, the authors are directing the creation of two experimental Social Centers in married student housing. (Author/KJ)
