Challenging Conventional Wisdom: Building an Adult-Centered Degree Completion Program at a Traditional University's Satellite Campus
Parkinson Norton, Susan; Pickus, Keith
Metropolitan Universities, v22 n1 p103-115 Aug 2011
This essay will discuss the creation of adult-learner degree programs at Wichita State University's satellite campuses with a particular focus on how such programs complement the mission of a traditional urban-serving research institution. It will assess the decision-making process that led to the transformation of satellite campuses into adult-learner centers and evaluate how the adult-learner degree completion programs were marketed to both internal and external audiences.
