Adult and Part-Time Students; Individuals in Higher Education.
Hirsch, Jerrold I., Ed.
A workshop was conducted by a commission concerned with encouraging and directing the leadership in student personnel work for adults in higher education. The workshop objectives were to highlight the unique characteristics of adult students and to explore the new setting that is emerging. In addition, an attempt was made to encourage creative action to meet the needs of adult students as individuals. The workshop was divided into four phases: (1) an identification of the characteristics of the part-time and adult student; (2) an examination of the college community, highlighting innovative programs, in light of the needs of adult students; (3) an identification of services directly relating to and affecting the adult student; and (4) an attempt to synthesize the earlier discussions.
