Mar 11 2012 - 10:52pm

OGDEN -- Dr. Susan R. Madsen will present findings of a two-year Utah Women and Education Project to the American Association of University Women Ogden Chapter from 10 a.m. to noon March 24, at the Ogden Golf and Country Club, 4197 Washington Blvd.

The study was formed to investigate why Utah women have fallen behind the national average for graduation and to identify ways in which women can be motivated to obtain degrees and certificates.

As the project director, Madsen led a research team of more than 100 colleagues, students, advisory committee members and community volunteers. Her presentation "Women and Higher Education in Utah: Moving Forward!" will outline the critical findings of the research and offer recommendations.
