Adult learners are a growing population on campuses across the country. An increasing number of institutions are adding adult-focused programs to their offerings. Students are seeking course offerings which are flexible and fast paced to allow them to meet their educational goals while still balancing work and family responsibilities.
Serving the needs of adult learners in this environment becomes a greater priority for colleges and universities. Student satisfaction is considered a core element for higher education institutions serving traditional-age students, and now more colleges and universities are expanding this assessment activity to adult learners as well.
