Many women today are completing a high school or college education with their children's approval.

Foreword
Adult women in all parts of the country are seeking educational opportunities adapted to their needs and interests. In response, more and more educational institutions and related organizations are developing special programs for them. This
report lists almost 450 programs known to be in operation in
early 1971, as compared with less than 250 reported in a similar
study made 3 years ago. These programs, offered at times and
in ways requested by mature women, are enabling many of
them to develop and utilize untapped talents and energies.
Regrettably, however, few continuing education programs for
women are aimed at helping the less educated and less articulate
women in our society. There is still a large unmet need for vocationally oriented programs, including catchup and brushup
courses, to help low-income women move from entry-level jobs
up career ladders to positions of skill and responsibility. Training
opportunities of use to them must be made available through
low-cost courses or with financial assistance.
Directors and potential participants of continuing education
programs are expected to find this report useful. Its significance
will be much greater, however, if it can stimulate development
of work-skill programs and related services which will help mature women with limited education to qualify for employment
and advancement.

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," released in 1963. 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, Puerto Rico, the Virgin
Islands, and 10 municipalities, also have pointed to gaps in




1

educational opportunities for adult women. Their recommendations cover numerous types of suggestions but generally focus
on ways of increasing the availability, suitability, and visibility
of higher education programs to meet the special needs of mature
women in their jurisdictions.
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 number of women and girls seeking a college education
has grown markedly. In the fall of 1969, women college students
numbered 3,222,000 1—more than four times greater than in 1950.
During this period the population of girls aged 18 to 21 increased
less than 60 percent. The marked gain in school attendance extended to adult women as well as college-age girls. Between
1950 and 1969, school enrollment rose from 26,000 to 311,000
among women 25 to 29 years of age and from 21,000 to 215,000
among women 30 to 34 years.2 Although enrollment figures for
women 35 years of age and over will not be available until the
1970 decennial census data are released, there is no doubt that
a significant number in this age group are college students.
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 20.8 years in
1970), the frequent changes in women's pattern of living, and
their lengthened lifespan (an increase of 26 years between 1900
and 1968).
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. Women first-time college
enrollees in degree-credit programs numbered 618,332 in the fall




3

of 1965.3 However, only 321,197 women earned a bachelor's degree during the school year 1968-69.4 A similar decrease occurred
in the number of men: First-time enrollees in degree-credit programs totaled 834,594 in the fall of 1965, but there were only
412,932 baccalaureate graduates in 1968-69. Thus, the proportion
of those graduating in the school year 1968-69 to first-time
college enrollees in the fall of 1965 equaled 52 percent among
the women and 49 percent among the men.
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 JOB INTEREST OF ADULT WOMEN
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 medical 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 1969 there were a total of 30.5 million women workers 16
years of age and over, as contrasted with 18.4 million in 1950.

Since education and employment appear to exert reciprocating influences for
women, the numbers of mature women both attending school and seeking
employment are on the rise.

Slightly less than half of the 12 million increase was attributed
to the larger number of women in the population; slightly more
than half of the increase, to the greater tendency of women to
enter the work force.
Further analysis reveals that 7.5 million of the 12 million additional women workers, or about 62 percent, were 35 years of
age and over. As a result, the median age of all women workers
16 years and over rose from 37 years in 1950 to 39 years in
1969. 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 54 percent
in 1969. Gains in work force participation were also reported
among women slightly younger and slightly older than the 45to 54-year age group, but these increases were not so spectacular.
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 1969 survey, the proportion of women at work
outside the home was almost three-fifths (58 percent) among




5

those with 4 years or more of college.5 In contrast, it was slightly
less than one-half (49 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 continuing education and in 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 threefourths 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. When
surveyed, about one-third of the group were employed and 5
out of 6 of the remainder indicated interest in future employment. Many also expressed a desire for additional education and

training, particularly for university courses that would prepare
them for teaching.
Of the women with recent experience in university courses,
significant numbers were critical of those with methodology and
content directed at teenagers. Such courses do not satisfy women
with considerable life experience. Other women had difficulty in
locating classes that reviewed and updated basic information in
their fields of interest.
Reporting that the hours offered by local colleges were not
convenient for them, some mothers wanted courses scheduled
when they were not caring for their children. They preferred to
attend classes during the daytime school hours, in the evening,
on Saturday, or in the summertime. Some alumnae also expressed
an interest in accelerated courses when they were preparing for
employment. Time schedules arranged principally for young people sometimes made them impatient.
The most frequent request of the surveyed alumnae was for
individual counseling by qualified persons; that is, by those
competent to advise them about their educational and employment plans. College counselors who necessarily spend most of
their time working with teenagers often do not realize the special
problems associated with continuing family responsibilities and
reentry into the labor force at a mature age. The alumnae also




7

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.
Comprehensive programs of continuing education for mature
women are now offered by several large universities. Many are
reported in appendix A, which provides a partial list of institutions of higher education with special programs and services for
women, compiled by State.
Early interest in assisting mature women was also revealed in
activities of various service-oriented organizations. For example, in 1950 the Hannah Harrison School was opened in Wash8




ington, D.C., under the auspices of the local Young Women's
Christian Association. Free tuition, room, and board are provided the women selected to participate in one of the several
job training programs conducted by the school. (See page 123.)
Two years later, in 1952, the Altrusa International Foundation
set up a vocational aid project to provide financial assistance to
older women having difficulties in obtaining employment. (See
page 120.) In Minneapolis, Minn., the Career Clinic for Mature
Women was established in 1958 to provide preemployment counseling and training programs for older women. Since then, various women's organizations, community associations, high schools,
State and local government agencies, as well as some miscellaneous private groups, have developed special services or programs
for mature women. A partial list of these organizations and
groups is shown in appendix B.
As the number and variety of programs for women have
multiplied, numerous innovative or especially valuable features
have been developed in addition to the basic offerings provided
by many of the programs. Appendix C lists some of these features along with reference numbers of the institutions and organizations which reported them.
An example of a program especially advantageous for adult
women is that designed to encourage and facilitate their resumption of an interrupted college education. Sarah Lawrence College
(New York) initiated such a program in 1962, accenting the
resumption of undergraduate study on a part-time basis. The
women are provided counseling assistance and refresher courses
prior to admission as degree candidates. The enthusiastic response to the program stimulated the establishment of part-time
arrangements for graduate study also. Other colleges with continuing education programs designed especially for adult women
who wish to complete (or to start) their undergraduate or graduate education are indexed in appendix C.
General orientation workshops and courses have been developed in response to widespread 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. Noteworthy, because of their relatively low fees, are the fairly new
orientation courses offered by the public school systems in several
localities (see appendix C).
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 includes two other fellowship programs, weekly seminars for adult
women, a guidance laboratory, and a research program. (See
page 58.)
Rising concern is being expressed in the need to extend the
benefits of continuing education programs to various groups of
women whose needs are largely still unmet. These include such
groups as low-income women; mothers with young children; employed women who wish executive, professional, or supervisory
training; and formerly married women now widowed or divorced.
Some of the programs tailored for these groups are also identified
in appendix C.
In order to help stimulate institutions of higher education to
increase their involvement in the solution of community prob^
lems, 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 D.
As assistance to institutions and agencies interested in developing continuing education programs or services for women, appendix E 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 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 shortterm, intensive, and practical courses. Often classes are 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.
w o m e general background information, a list of readings relating
generous
education for women is provided in appendix F.

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 programed 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.

VALUE 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.
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
12




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.




13

In a workshop for counselors of adult women, participants discuss such topics as the sociological and psychological aspects of work,
total life planning, testing procedures, part-time employment opportunities, and practical considerations relating to women's employment.




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. In addition, educational institutions, realizing that the needs and problems of many adult
women are unique, often are interested in having these circumstances interpreted to them.




15

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 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 inclusive, since it was not based on an intensive
and comprehensive survey.

APPENDIX C
Guide to Selected Features of Programs
and Services Reported
As continuing education programs and services for women
expand in number and scope, there is rising interest in those which
include certain features and relevant provisions. Program developers and directors seek the names of institutions which offer,
for example, child care services for mothers while they are
attending classes, executive or supervisory training for women,
programs directed toward meeting the needs of low-income women, and courses on women's status or history.
The following list of miscellaneous types of program features
of current interest provides the appendix numbers of the colleges,
universities, or other organizations which mentioned these offerings. The A or B identification included with each number indicates whether the institution name and program description are
reported in appendix A or appendix B.
Not indexed are such fairly standard program offerings as
counseling and guidance services, testing, information and referral services, utilization of proficiency examinations, vocational
training courses, and placement assistance.
Since the source of the information is frequently general statements provided by the cooperating institutions and organizations,
the index offers leads to useful information and is not considered to
be a comprehensive and authoritative report.

APPENDIX D
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, 1970, there were
63 programs approved for Federal funding which provide counseling, training, or academic instruction specifically for women. In
addition, approximately 3,000 programs approved during this
41/2-year period included a few programs for nurses, home economics and other teachers, medical secretaries, and other occupation
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




145

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. To
obtain the name and address of your State agency, write to the
Office of Community Service and Continuing Education, Bureau
of Higher Education, 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 could not exceed 66 % percent of total project
costs during the fiscal years ending in 1969 and 1970. The remaining portion of project costs must be supplied from non-Federal
sources. Since the inception of this program, each institution
has been required to provide or arrange for matching funds varying between 25 and 50 percent of total costs.

APPENDIX E
Questions for Program Planners
Numerous questions arise when educators and others consider
establishing a continuing education program or service especially
for women. 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 avail-




157

able to adult women in your area, would it be desirable 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 ?

continuing education program or service specifically for
women ?

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?
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 aids, be utilized to appeal to
various persons and to increase individual involvement?




159

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 ?

expansion—in terms of either size or type of offerings?
