The Impact of Age-Discrimination on Older People of Color Who Wish To Teach.
Jones, David
This paper discusses Martin University, the only predominantly African-American school of higher learning in Indiana. Its philosophy is that higher education needs to be made available to all who can benefit. Martin University consciously exists to assist adult-aged individuals and the whole community to become free of everything that holds the people back from higher education, career achievement, personal satisfaction, and the passionate joy of life lived to the fullest. Martin University, through its "healing" and "freedom" mission, helps adult students abrogate their negative self-imposed doubts by having the freedom to integrate their life experience and knowledge within the classroom. Instructors serve as facilitators of learning, using the andragogical approach developed by the educational theorist Malcolm Knowles. In a random survey of approximately 60 Martin University students, over 90% reported their great satisfaction with Martin University as a place of learning. (BT)
