Adult, nontraditional students comprise the fastest growing sector of higher education student enrollments. Recent data indicates that approximately 50 percent of new students are adult learners. However, many higher education institutions whose history and traditions have been primarily in serving 18-22 year old residential students are facing significant challenges in creating and providing educational programs appropriate to this greatly expanding market. One result of this reality has been rising attrition rates for these adult students.
RPA Inc. can provide not only marketing strategies to attract increased numbers of adult students but also strategies for: a) curriculum and faculty development which incorporate andragogical (adult learning theory) principles; b) systems for the effective management of adult programs; and c) design and implementation of course/program delivery modes.
Whether an institution desires to launch an adult program or increase enrollments in an existing adult program, RPA Inc. can provide expert assistance to accomplish those goals.
