Re-Entry Women: Special Programs for Special Populations. Field Evaluation Draft.
Hall, Roberta M.; Gleaves, Francelia D.
This pamphlet provides information on what higher education institutions can do to accomodate women over 25 who have interrupted their education for several years and are now entering or re-entering postsecondary institutions. Topics discussed include institutional attitudes, double discrimination, institutional invisibility, and barriers to re-entry and directions for change. Various special re-entry populations are described, including Asian/Pacific black, and Hispanic women, single parents, displaced homemakers, older women, and disabled women. Recommendations for higher education institutions are offered in the areas of recruitment, financial aid, admissions and registration, support services, counseling and basic skills, curriculum, scheduling and course planning, and transfer policies between re-entry programs and regular programs and between two-year and four-year institutions. Federal laws pertaining to special populations of re-entry women are listed as are several resource publications and organizations. (APM)
