Adult Counseling for Sex Equity in Post-Secondary Education.
Parker, Delores; Eliason, Carol
This monograph concerns the role of the student personnel worker in counseling adult students, especially female students. Reasons why women return to college and their utilization of a student personnel department are reviewed. An analysis of admission requirements for adult students and an outline of institutional activities that promote sex equity are included. Specific recommendations are made for changes that will enhance educational opportunities for women in higher education. It is suggested that colleges must update admissions practices to eliminate barriers for women, employ women as successful role models, design special programs for women, and change existing attitudes and biases regarding the education of women. The appendix contains modules for counselor training workshops that promote sex equity. (NRB)
