This book is designed to help raise awareness about the diversity of issues adult learners face in their enrollment and participation in higher education. It will equip faculty, administrators, and others with the analytical and practical skills to make sound decisions relative to adult learners, and provide techniques and frameworks for assessing, implementing, and evaluating practices within the institution—at the classroom, department, school, and campus levels—to nurture and support responsiveness to adult learners.
