Delaware Univ., Newark. Commission on Lifelong Learning.
Tasks of the University of Delaware Commission on Lifelong Learning are discussed as part of a 5-year plan (1981-1985). Near-term, intermediate-term, and long-term objectives for the 5-year plan are identified. Following each objective, references are made to chapter and pages in the text that provide relevant background information and supporting arguments. Attention is directed to the following concerns: the relation of lifelong learning to the mission of the university in a changing societal context, lifelong learning as a central activity and responsibility of the faculty, establishing university policies and practices that respond to the needs of lifelong learners, innovative responses to new groups and new circumstances, and expanded interinstitutional cooperation as a means of improving statewide opportunities for lifelong learning. Objectives include the following: respond to the variety of learning needs and interests of part-time adult students, offer courses at convenient times for adults, allow pass/fail grading options to nonmatriculated students, make services more accessible to adults, provide noncredit programs of quality in high-demand areas, and provide degree-oriented adult students with new opportunities to complete degrees through part-time study.
