CONTINUING EDUCATION PROGRAMS AND SERVICES FOR WOMEN PAMPHLET 10 U.S. DEPARTMENT OF LABOR Willard Wirtz, Secretary WAGE AND LABOR STANDARDS ADMINISTRATION Esther Peterson, Administrator WOMEN'S BUREAU Mary Dublin Keyserling, Director Pamphlet 10 Revised January 1968 For sale by the Superintendent of Documents, U.S. Government Printing Office Washington, D.C. 20402 - Price 40 cents Foreword The rising aspirations of women today are reflected in the growing demand for continuing education programs that meet the special needs of women in their middle years. Whether they wish to update their skills before reentering the work force or rekindle dormant intellectual interests, more and more adult women are making the effort to resume their formal education. They are well aware of how strategic a role education can play in helping them to develop their potentialities and enlarge their contributions to society. Inquiries received by the Women's Bureau about continuing education programs for women come primarily from mature women and college educators and administrators. Women want to know what special educational programs are available in their area. Educators seek background information that explains women's interest in and need for special programs and describes what other educators are doing to aid them. This report has been prepared, therefore, primarily for these two groups. If it can help acquaint more adult women with the types of special programs now being offered and stimulate additional colleges and universities to respond to the special educational needs of mature women, all members of our society will be the beneficiaries. Mary Dublin Keyserling Director, Women's Bureau iii Acknowledgments The Women's Bureau wishes to acknowledge with appreciation the assistance of the many colleges, universities, and organizations that supplied information for this publication. Special appreciation is extended to the American Association of University Women for making pertinent information available from its files.

"The requirements in these fields [certain professional fields] alone will be 110,000 additional trained specialists every month for the next 10 years.

Lyndon B. Johnson President February 28, 1966 vi CONTINUING EDUCATION PROGRAMS AND SERVICES FOR WOMEN Many mature women who want to return to school or work after a period devoted to homemaking are voicing a desire to refresh and update rusty skills learned 10 or 20 years earlier. Changing interests and needs of these women are raising questions about the adequacy of education programs available in many colleges and universities today. Are teaching methods and courses designed for girls in their late teens satisfactory for women in their thirties and over? Could refresher and updating courses be offered by more schools? Could more classes be scheduled at times when children are in school or when some family member other than the mother is at home? Have sufficient counseling and financial services been established to help encourage mature women to return to college? In general, is the traditional pattern of 4 years of continuous study-established in colleges and universities more than one hundred years ago-really appropriate for the activities and requirements of modern adult women? NEW ACTION FOR NEW NEEDS The President's Commission on the Status of Women highlighted the value of continuing education for mature women in its report, "American Women." As one of its major recommendations, the Commission urged a comprehensive program of continuing education geared to the individual woman's needs. Commissions on the status of women established thereafter in 50 States, the District of Columbia, the Virgin Islands, and two municipalities also have pointed to gaps in educational opportunities for adult women. Their recommendations cover numerous types of suggestions but generally focus on ways of increasing the 1 availability, suitability, and visibility of higher education programs to meet the special needs of mature women in their jurisdiction. Mounting evidence confirms the need to reexamine current curriculums and services of higher educational institutions to learn whether more should and could be done in the light of recent social and economic developments. The evidence consists of (1) recent demographic and economic developments, (2) growing demand by mature women for appropriate consideration of their needs, and (3) experimental programs being established by more and more colleges and universities. The importance of new action to match new circumstances is further emphasized by forecasts of growing demand for skilled and educated workers. REASONS BEHIND THE RETURN TO COLLEGE The U.S. Office of Education reports that in the fall of 1967 the number of women college students was 2,805,000 more than three times greater than in 1950. During this period the population of girls aged 18 to 21 increased only about 40 percent. The marked gain in school attendance extended to adult women as well as college-age girls. Between 1950 and 1966, school enrollment rose from 26,000 to 214,000 among women 25 to 29 years of age and from 21,000 to 92,000 among women 30 to 34 years.2 Although enrollment figures are not available for persons 35 years of age and over, there is no doubt that many of the women students in 1966 were over 35 years. The rising interest of mature women in returning to college is related in part to the greater desire of men and women in all age groups to develop their understanding of the complexities of modern life. There is widespread realization that additional education can bring deeper personal enrichment as well as job skills useful in the working world. Various demographic factors also help to explain the great interest of mature women in college attendance in the United States. And they indicate why the interest is even greater among women than among men over 35 years of age. These factors include women's early age at marriage (median of 20.5 years in 1966), the frequent changes in women's pattern of living, and their lengthened lifespan (an increase of 25 years between 1900 and 1966). 1 "Opening Fall Enrollment in Higher Education, 1967."

Bureau of the Census, U.S. Department of Commerce. 2 Like these teachers, many women want to participate in the working world. Significant numbers of women students leave college before they graduate in order to work and help finance the education of their husbands or to care for their homes and children. Studies that trace college freshmen from initial enrollment through graduation are not available, but other statistics shed some light on the extent of their retention in school. According to the U.S. Office of Education, women first-time college enrollees in degree-credit programs numbered 430,293 in the fall of 1961.3 However, only 213,207 women earned a bachelor's degree during the school year 1964-65.4 A similar decrease occurred in the number of men: First-time enrollees in degree-credit programs totaled 595,794 in the fall of 1961, but there were only 279,777 baccalaureate graduates in 1964-65. 3 "Opening (Fall) Enrollment in Higher Education, 1961: Institutional Data." Bull. OE-540003-61. Office of Education, U.S. Department of Health, Education, and Welfare. 4 "Summary Report on Bachelor's and Higher Degrees Conferred During the Year 1964-65." Bull. OE-54010-65. Office of Education, U.S. Department of Health, Education, and Welfare. 3 True dropout rates cannot be calculated from these figures because many of the freshmen were part-time students, some were enrolled in 5-year programs, and others terminated their schooling after graduating from a 2-year college. Nevertheless, it is significant that the number who graduated is much smaller than the number who enrolled in college 4 years earlier. Thus it is evident that many of the women who did not graduate are potential "returnees" during their mature years. When home and family responsibilities lessen, a considerable group of women find they have time to resume formal education. Freed from many housekeeping chores by modern inventions and discoveries, some are interested in returning to school for cultural or social reasons. Others wish to attain a higher degree, to update their professional skills, or to prepare for reentering the work force. Refresher courses, as well as courses that are completely new, can update job skills made obsolete by technological, scientific, or other advances. RISING J O B INTEREST OF ADULT W O M E N The tremendous rise in the number of mature women who are working outside the home is well documented by labor force statistics issued by the U.S. Department of Labor. The stimulus for many of these women is a desire to supplement family income—to help send children to college, buy a family home, or pay doctor bills. Those who are divorced or widowed often must work to support themselves and others. The recognized need for the services of educated and talented persons in a variety of challenging occupations is attracting other women into the work force. In 1967 there were a total of 28.4 million women workers 16 years of age and over, as contrasted with 18.4 million in 1950. About three-fifths of the 10 million increase was attributed to the greater tendency of women to enter the work force; the remaining two-fifths, to the larger number of women in the population. Further analysis reveals that almost 6.8 million of the 10 million additional women workers were 35 years of age and over. In fact, the median age of all women workers 16 years and over rose from 37 years in 1950 to 40 years in 1967. The greatest change in the proportion engaged in paid employment was recorded for women 45 to 54 years of age-from 25 percent in 1940 to 37 percent in 1950 and to 52 percent in 1967. Gains in work force participation also were reported among women slightly younger and slightly older than the 45- to 54-year age group, but their increases were not so spectacular. 4 The chances that a woman will obtain a paid job can be expected to increase with the level of her formal education. According to a 1967 survey made by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the proportion of women at work outside the home was almost three-fifths (57 percent) among those with 4 years or more of college.5 In contrast, it was less than one-half (47 percent) among high school graduates with no college training and less than one-third (30 percent) among women who had left school after the eighth grade. As the level of formal education continues to rise throughout the country and greater numbers of women attend college, the group of women who seek paid employment probably will expand. And since education and employment appear to exert reciprocating influences, we can expect the number of mature women attending college to continue to rise. EDUCATIONAL SERVICES REQUESTED Firsthand reports of the educational interests and problems of adult women are available in two questionnaire surveys conducted by the Women's Bureau. Both were followup studies of women who had been out of college for some years. The more recent of these surveys was conducted in 1964 among women who graduated from college in June 1957.6 Their interest in both continuing education and paid employment was exceedingly high-both among the 51 percent in the work force in 1964 and among the 49 percent out of it. Of the total group, almost three-fourths said they were planning to enroll in an educational or a training course in the future. Of these, more than half were motivated by job-connected reasons; the others, by cultural or personal interests. Although 46 percent of the June 1957 women graduates had taken at least one graduate or professional course in the 7-year period after graduation, few commented on the adequacy of their educational opportunities or suggested improvements. More revealing clues to the educational experiences of adult women were provided in the Women's Bureau exploratory survey among women who had been out of college for 15 years.7 As most of this group had children in school, many were at an age when they were thinking of changing their pattern of living.

Studies that trace college freshmen from initial enrollment through graduation are not available, but other statistics shed some light on the extent of their retention in school. According to the U.S. Office of Education, women first-time college enrollees in degree-credit programs numbered 430,293 in the fall of 1961.3 However, only 213,207 women earned a bachelor's degree during the school year 1964-65.4 A similar decrease occurred in the number of men: First-time enrollees in degree-credit programs totaled 595,794 in the fall of 1961, but there were only 279,777 baccalaureate graduates in 1964-65. 3 "Opening (Fall) Enrollment in Higher Education, 1961: Institutional Data."

The alumnae also felt that many of their counselors were not aware of existing services and facilities that could help in solving their problems. The various suggestions and criticisms made by these college alumnae shed light on the special interests of mature women in continuing their education. The responses also raised doubts about the adequacy of many courses and services available to mature women in colleges and universities. EXAMPLES OF EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS The forerunners of the so-called "continuing education programs for women" were the courses instituted following World War II. College graduates with a background in liberal arts were given intensive courses in education leading to teacher certification. Some colleges and universities also scheduled refresher courses for professional nurses. But the continuing education programs developed for women in the 1960's acquired some interesting new features. Although generally not all offered by the same college or university, some of the principal features are: limited course loads in degree or nondegree programs, flexible scheduling of classes at hours convenient for housewives, liberal provision for transfer credits, educational and employment counseling, financial assistance for part-time study, nursery services, and job placement or referral services. In 1960 the University of Minnesota formally organized a facility specifically committed to making the resources of the university more efficiently and effectively useful to adult women. Now called the Minnesota Planning and Counseling Center for Women, it highlights individual counseling and information services for women at all levels of education. Women are referred to both educational and employment opportunities throughout the local metropolitan area. This comprehensive program also encompasses scholarship aid for adult women, nursery facilities, and job placement services. Beginning in 1966, the Center has offered the program Operation: Second Chance, through which over 60 post-high-school educational institutions provide advisory, counseling, and related services to adult women throughout the State. (See page 42.) Comprehensive programs of continuing education for mature women are offered also by Oakland University (Michigan), the University of Michigan, the University of Wisconsin, and Washington University (Missouri). 7 Sarah Lawrence College (New York) in 1962 initiated a program especially for adult women who wish to resume an interrupted college education on a part-time basis. The women are provided counseling assistance and refresher courses prior to admission as degree candidates. The enthusiastic response to this program stimulated the establishment of part-time arrangements for graduate study also. In addition to a master's degree program conducted on campus, the college has arranged with two other schools for part-time study programs leading to a master's degree in social work, library science, or early childhood and elementary education. (See page 56.) Other colleges with continuing education programs designed especially for adult women who wish to complete (or to start) their undergraduate education include Armstrong State College (Georgia), Baltimore Junior College (Maryland), Beaver College (Pennsylvania), Bucks County Community College (Pennsylvania), College of Notre Dame (California), Connecticut College, Defiance College (Ohio), Highland Community College (Illinois), Lindenwood College for Women (Missouri), Middle Tennessee State University, Nassau Community College (New York), Saint Xavier College (Illinois), Santa Monica City College (California), Temple University (Pennsylvania), Tift College (Georgia), and the University of Pittsburgh (Pennsylvania). General orientation workshops or courses have been developed by various colleges and universities in response to demand from adult women interested in entering or reentering the work force. These courses typically provide guest lectures on careers, information about educational courses and volunteer work, counseling on both a group and an individual basis, and placement assistance. Among the schools offering this type of continuing education program are Alverno College (Wisconsin), Barnard College (New York), George Washington University (District of Columbia), Hofstra University (New York), Long Beach City College (California), Michigan State University, Orange Coast College (California), Portland Community College (Oregon), State University Agricultural and Technical College (New York), the University of Akron (Ohio), the University of California at Los Angeles, the University of Missouri at St. Louis, and the University of Washington. Especially noteworthy are the general orientation courses offered by the public school systems in two localities: Arlington, Virginia (page 86) and Port Washington, New York (page 84). The Radcliffe Institute (Massachusetts) seeks highly qualified women, particularly those with advanced degrees, and provides generous financial assistance so they can combine a period of creative study with homemaking. Its expanded program also 9 includes two other fellowship programs, weekly seminars for adult women, a guidance laboratory, and a research program. (See page 37.) A few institutions focus their continuing education activities on one field of study as, for example, Rutgers University (New Jersey), which offers a Retraining Program in Mathematics and Science. (See page 48.) Also, Wellesley College (Massachusetts) conducts an Institute in Chemistry that leads to a master's degree. (See page 38.) In addition, numerous schools offer refresher courses in professional nursing, teaching, home economics, or business skills. A number of courses prepare adult women for employment in semiskilled occupations as assistants or aides. In this category are courses for "gericare-aides" and teacher aides (State University Agricultural and Technical College, New York), library aides (University of Missouri at St. Louis), mental health assistants (Sullivan County Community College, New York), nursery school assistants (Merritt College, California), research assistants (University of Missouri at Kansas City), and school library aides, social work aides, and teacher aides (University of Connecticut). In addition, many other colleges and universities are attempting to meet specific educational needs of their alumnae, as well as of other women living in their area. A partial list of colleges and universities with special programs or services for women has been compiled by State and is shown in appendix A. Various service-oriented organizations also have begun to develop special services or programs for mature women. Such groups include women's organizations, community organizations, high schools, State or local government agencies, as well as miscellaneous private groups. A partial list of these groups is given in appendix B. In order to help stimulate institutions of higher education to increase their involvement in the solution of community problems, Congress has provided Federal funds which may be used to develop continuing education projects. Information about the Community Service and Continuing Education Program established by Congress and descriptions of some projects funded by this program are included in appendix C. As assistance to institutions and agencies interested in developing continuing education programs or services for women, appendix D lists some pertinent questions that may help in the early planning stage. Interest in the development of practical guidelines may stimulate those engaged in project operations to formulate this highly useful type of program aid. Many colleges and universities, of course, arrange programs and services that benefit both adult men and adult women. Since such activities are not highlighted in the appendix listings, it should be 10 emphasized that their offerings are valuable educational resources that bear exploring by adult women. In addition, many private business, trade, and technical schools provide training programs which are advantageously scheduled from the viewpoint of adult women. Since these schools generally specialize in training for employment, they usually offer short-term, intensive, and practical courses. Their classes are often held both day and night and can be taken on a full- or part-time basis. Tuition varies widely, ranging from very modest to relatively high fees. The standards of instruction of these schools are regulated in some States, but generally it is wise for prospective students to inquire locally about the reputation and past performance of the private school they are considering attending. As general background information, two reading lists are provided. Appendix E lists readings relating to continuing education for women; appendix F, readings on employment and training opportunities for women in the professions. SPECIAL DEGREE PROGRAMS FOR ADULTS In other experiments now underway, innovations in curriculums and educational practices are being developed through degree programs especially for adults. The need for a new approach results from the increasing number of mature men and women who want to work toward a degree but whose lives are not geared to regular classroom and credit hour requirements. Degree programs designed for adults often include several of the following features: short-term residence requirements, independent study, credit for life experience, seminars, correspondence study, and programmed learning. Some of the schools with this type of program are Brooklyn College (New York), Goddard College (Vermont), Mundelein College (Illinois), Pacific Oaks College (California), Roosevelt University (Illinois), Syracuse University (New York), and the University of Oklahoma. V A L U E OF CONTINUING EDUCATION PROGRAMS Support of continuing education programs for women is consistent with the principles of our democratic society that foster freedom of choice and personal fulfillment. Such programs help make it possible for women to engage in activities that use their individual abilities and energies. Women need opportunities to satisfy their yearning for self-development and expression. They want more college education either to expand intellectual interests or to prepare for employment. 2 9 4 - 3 4 4 O - 68 - 2 ^ ^ Increased educational opportunities for mature women may bring numerous rewards. These rewards can extend beyond individual satisfaction to society at large. Economic forecasts indicate that the talents and energies of educated men and women will be needed urgently to help our country grow and to provide a better life for all our citizens. If mature women are to be active and responsible participants in tomorrow's world, however, new responses must be made to changing social and economic developments. Mature women who find they have more free time and want to share in the excitement and responsibilities of the economic world need to be able to obtain suitable occupational skills. As the number who return to college and work continues to rise, they need to make known their interests in and their requirements for education and training. University and college officials, in turn, need to review their current curriculum offerings to be sure that education is available to mature women at suitable times and places and in a manner appropriate to adult experience and patterns of life. These officials also need to understand how important is the establishment of a special educational facility or service for mature women. Whether they involve refresher courses, a counseling service, financial assistance, or some other form of special service, such programs demonstrate active support and encouragement of continuing education for women. 12 Schooldays for adult women mean careful budgeting of time for homework and housework. 14 APPENDIX A Schools With Special Programs or Services for Adult Women, by State A Partial List of Colleges and Universities With Continuing Education Programs or Special Educational Services Designed Primarily for Adult Women In their regular undergraduate, graduate, and adult education programs, many colleges and universities offer the same educational services to adult women as to other persons. Especially in metropolitan areas, large universities schedule classes almost continuously during the daytime and evening. Their numerous courses often cover a wide array of professional and semiprofessional subjects, vocational information, and aspects of personal development. The standard offerings of some institutions of higher education include summer sessions, part-time enrollment, short-term courses, public institutes, alumnae workshops, conferences, correspondence courses, televised courses, or audiovisual materials available on loan. In addition, some public universities operate a statewide extension service that has facilities for conducting in small cities and towns specific courses requested by the local residents. Such varied educational opportunities are, of course, exceedingly valuable to adult women. Nevertheless, because of the relatively small proportion of mature women in the college population, women frequently feel that their educational needs and problems require special attention. Educational institutions, realizing that the needs and problems of many adult women are unique, often are interested in having these circumstances interpreted to them. The following list of institutions is intended to be illustrative of those that have established continuing education programs or educational services with specific concern for adult women. Although institutions which offer courses of particular interest to 15 adult women are undoubtedly performing a valuable service, they are not listed unless their program contains special procedures or services designed specifically for mature women—the immediate focus of this study. As may be noted, the types of programs and services offered differ markedly from institution to institution. In general each program has been designed to meet the specific needs of mature women in the immediate area. The list is not all inclusive, since it was not based on an intensive and comprehensive survey.

APPENDIX C Federal Funds for Continuing Education Programs Continuing education programs proposed by institutions of higher education may qualify for Federal assistance under the Community Service and Continuing Education Programs authorized under title I of the Higher Education Act of 1965. Between passage of the act in November 1965 and June 30, 1967, there were 24 programs approved for Federal funding which provide counseling, training, or academic instruction specifically for women. In addition, the total of 1,152 programs approved during this 19-month period included a few programs for nurses, home economics and other teachers, medical secretaries, and other occupational groups comprised mainly of women. Other programs focus on family responsibility and management and also attract primarily women participants. The objectives of the Community Service and Continuing Education Programs are "to apply the resources of institutions of higher education, both public and private, to the solution of community problems by enlarging and extending university extension and continuing education programs." Community problems in rural, urban, or suburban areas are of concern, with particular emphasis on urban and suburban problems, such as housing, poverty, government, recreation, employment, youth opportunities, transportation, health, and land use. To be eligible for funds, the community service programs sponsored by higher education institutions should be developed "to meet the unique educational needs of the adult population who have either completed or interrupted their formal education." Participation in the programs must be voluntary and open to any adult involved in the community problem specified. Numerous types of instructional methods are permitted. State agencies that have been designated or created by the Governor of each State and approved by the U.S. Office of Education are the channels for information and approval of funds. 89 To obtain the name and address of your State agency, write to the Office of Community Service and Continuing Education, Division of Adult Education Programs, Office of Education, U.S. Department of Health, Education, and Welfare, Washington, D.C. 20202. The following list supplied by the Office of Education describes, by State and institution of higher education, the projects specifically designed for women. Dollar figures indicate the Federal allotment, which is 75 percent of the total project cost. The remaining portion must be supplied from non-Federal sources.

Answers to many of these questions will vary with each situation. Since answers to the questions that may be applied broadly will require further study, the preparation of definitive guidelines for continuing education programs lies in the future. In the interim, the following questions are presented as an aid to planners or revisers of programs. Needs of Adult Women 1. Does your area provide opportunities that help meet the educational and related needs of adult women? Examples of such opportunities include: Adequate numbers and types of training courses Appropriate time schedules for classes Child care facilities Counseling geared to the special circumstances of adult women's lives Enrollment on a part-time basis Financial aid for part-time study Information about educational, employment, and volunteer opportunities Job-placement assistance Part-time job opportunities Reasonable rules covering transfer of credits Refresher courses Reorientation courses Other special needs 2. If there is doubt about the adequacy of opportunities available to adult women in your area, would it be desirable 95 to hold a conference of adult women and other interested persons to ascertain the need? 3. Would it be feasible to conduct a questionnaire survey of adult women in your area to learn more about their interests and needs? Educational Facilities 4. What educational offerings are available to adult women in your area? 5. Have ideas about additional educational programs been discussed with officials of local educational organizations? 6. Have background materials been requested from institutions or organizations operating pertinent programs in other locations? 7. Would it be feasible to visit universities and colleges with pertinent programs to observe their operations? Employment Opportunities 8. What industries in your area are potential employers of adult women? What kinds of jobs do they offer? 9. Would it be feasible to contact industry officials in the area to stimulate their interest in employing larger numbers of adult women? 10. Can more employers be encouraged to provide part-time job opportunities? Interest of Community Groups 11. What groups or organizations have indicated interest in a continuing education program or service specifically for women? 12. Have local employment offices (public and private) been contacted to determine the kind of help they might give the program? 96 13. What organizations in the area are interested in utilizing adult women in a volunteer capacity? Development of Program 14. Has a representative committee of key persons from educational institutions, industry, labor, women's organizations, employment agencies, and other pertinent groups been set up to help with planning? 15. Have the goals of the program been spelled out? 16. What financial resources are available? 17. Can trained staff be recruited? 18. Will the operating staff need supportive assistance from clerical staff, counselors, program advisers, resource consultants, and others? 19. Where will the program be conducted? Are the physical facilities adequate? 20. Are plans being made to establish a library of background materials relating to the program? 21. What publicity channels are available for disseminating information about any program that is established? 22. Would it be helpful to the operating staff to have an advisory committee for the ongoing program? Program Design 23. How many participants will the program be able to accommodate? 24. If entry requirements are set, how will these be evaluated? 25. For what types of women, in terms of educational level, occupational experience, income level, or anticipated goals, is the program designed? 97 26. If the program attracts significant numbers of women in any specific category, would it be feasible to provide separate courses for them? 27. Have methods of establishing rapport among program participants been considered? 28. Will a variety of teaching techniques, including discussions, lectures, role playing, and visual aides, be utilized to appeal to various persons and to increase individual involvement? 29. What kind of classroom materials or related resources will be needed? 30. Would it be feasible to utilize such community resources as guest speakers or field trips in the program? 31. Will the guest speakers be primarily persons with whom the women students can relate? 32. Will the program take into consideration opportunities for women nationally as well as locally? 33. What innovative aspects will the program include? 34. Will the program participants need supportive services, such as counseling, child care facilities, and job referral services? 35. Will program arrangements be flexible enough to allow for adjustments after the program is in operation? 36. Will some form of recognition, such as a certificate or a graduation ceremony, be provided for women who complete a program of study? Followup Activities 37. Would it be possible to obtain information about the followup activities of the program participants? 38. Will a report of program goals, operations, and accomplishments be prepared for public distribution? 39. Are procedures for evaluating the program in terms of achievement of goals and cost of operation being built into the program at the planning stage? 40. If the need exists, will consideration be given to program expansion—in terms of either size or type of offerings? 98 APPENDIX E Selected Readings Relating to Continuing Education American Association of University Women Educational Foundation.
