Utah Foundation hopes to grow economy through (female) graduates
Article here. Excerpt:
'With 20 percent of Utah's enrolled college students not graduating, Utah sits below the national average of college completion. This is especially true for women, according to Susan Madsen, professor at Utah Valley University and founder of the Utah Women in Education Initiative.
While Utah women obtain 10 percent more associate degrees than men, they receive 6 percent fewer bachelor's degrees, Madsen said.
A survey by the initiative concluded that Utah women have solid aspirations to attend college, but much lower aspirations to graduate. Nearly all women who didn't attend college or who dropped out said they truly believed they would get degrees "sometime."
Madsen hopes the Utah Women in Education Initiative will help women understand the accessibility of higher education, and the far-reaching benefits it can bring.
"It's about helping these women get confidence and know that they can be successful in helping take care of their families," she said. "But also that education can help them step into the communities and make a difference in our schools, in our communities, in our churches and for the state of Utah."'
