Old Myths and New Realities: Restructuring Student Services for Adult Learners.
Brodzinski, Frederick R.
Trends in the enrollment of adult students in higher education are examined, and some inappropriate policies and procedures presently in effect at colleges and universities that are obstacles to adult learners are discussed. The demographic picture of the adult student population is presented as are projections for the general population and potential student market. Increases in the adult population are charted, and a graph of the age distribution until the year 2000 is included. Ways in which the student services/student affairs area may adapt its policies, programs, and procedures to better serve adult learners and to avoid creating obstacles to continued adult student enrollment are considered.
