520 1  "In most universities there are now more adults as 
       students than young people straight from school. Yet many 
       universities continue to act as if no such change had 
       taken place. The Adult University examines theoretically 
       and practically key issues of broader participation in 
       higher education. It asks: What are university access 
       policies and how do they connect with practice; do 
       universities behave in ways that encourage or thwart wider
       access? How do adults experience universities; and how far
       do universities adapt to assist adults? What can 
       universities realistically do to improve both the access 
       to and experience of university for adults."--BOOK JACKET.
       "The Adult University is essential reading for all those 
       interested in the development of our mass higher education
       system. It points to ways in which individual universities
       and the system of higher education could and should evolve
       in advanced industrial societies."--BOOK JACKET.
