A Report to the Ohio Board of Regents: Extended Learning Program.
Ohio Univ., Athens.
An overwhelming response to the model Extended Learning Programs in the greater Cleveland area and in southeastern Ohio, under the leadership of Ohio University, has indicated that there is a sizeable group of adults with interrupted college programs and unfulfilled career plans whose unique needs were not or could not be met by existing programs of higher education. The program has placed much emphasis on individualized counseling and has recognized the uniqueness of circumstances and aspirations of each student. The report reviews the organization of the project and the necessary procedures for communication and public relations. One section provides a student profile, compiled from questionnaires, of information about people who applied to the program. Other sections describe the course and credit possibilities presently available to extended learning students, counseling and referral process, types of degree programs conducive to independent study approaches, faculty, inter-institutional cooperation, and financing. Also included is an appendix of case studies of four students. (EA)
