Recruitment and Admissions: Opening the Door for Re-entry Women. Field Evaluation Draft.
Problems in the recruitment and admission of re-entry women are identified, and ways in which institutions can be more responsive to these students are suggested. A wide range of possible actions is included so that institutions can pursue those most appropriate to their individual circumstances. Suggestions concerning recruitment include the following areas: what women need to know, developing specific materials, outreach strategies, re-entry workshops and other types of offerings, direct institutional services, recruiting re-entry women for traditionally "male" academic or vocational programs, and special populations and recruitment. Suggestions concerning admissions include the following areas: criteria, other ways of assessing ability, forms and admissions packets, fees and the prohibitive costs of applying, other problems in admissions policies, and deterrents in the admissions office. Legal considerations include Title IX, the Public Health Service Act, and the Age Discrimination Act of 1975. A selected list of resources is included. (SW)
