“I started this program during a time when the thought was that married women didn’t go to college.”
As an instructor at Moraine Valley in 1970, Horwitz observed an increasing number of nontraditional-aged women returning to college. As a result, she developed the Returning Women’s Program—a cohort where women could learn together in an intellectually challenging environment. More than 1,000 women were enrolled in the program. Horwitz shares comments from many of them who were impacted by the experience.
