Student Role Supports for Younger and Older Middle-Aged Women: Applications of a Life-Event Model.
Thacker, Charlene; Novak, Mark
Canadian Journal of Higher Education, v21 n1 p13-36 1991
A study of 276 women aged 35-64 re-entering higher education used the life-event framework to focus on stresses of university life, coping methods, and adaptations to school demands. Subgroup (women with young families and mature families) experiences were compared. Each had different motives, strains, and coping methods. Program options are examined. (Author/MSE)
