California State Univ., Hayward.; California State Univ. and Colleges, Long Beach. Office of the Chancellor.; California State Univ., Long Beach. Center for Innovative Programs.
This guide, based on a project to improve services to adult learners at the California State University (CSU) Hayward campus, is designed to help faculty become more aware of the needs of adult learners and to promote the changes that will help institutions in the CSU system to meet those needs. The guide serves as a summary overview of key issues related to institutional support for adult learners, and how this campus is responding to those issues. Part 1, "Support Services for Adult Learners," presents the issues related to adult learner needs and support services, noting the ones that are already offered or planned and which may be adaptable to other institutions. The succeeding parts each focus on particular facets of the project which is the basis for this guide: Part 2:"Inventory of Student Services"; Part 3: "The Student Survey"; and Part 4: "The Student Handbook." In each case, the purpose and goals are discussed, followed by a brief review of the procedures implemented. Where feasible, the actual instruments used or documents produced in completing that facet of the project have been included for inspection. The last part of the guide, part 5, "Project Evaluation," presents a brief summary of the project outcomes. (JB)
