New study to focus on economics of educating women in Arkansas

New study to focus on economics of educating women in Arkansas

CONWAY (UCA)—University of Central Arkansas faculty and students in the Interdisciplinary PhD in Leadership (LEAD) program are working together with the Women’s Foundation of Arkansas to examine the economics of educating women in Arkansas.

This study will build upon previous findings by taking a new look at why women in Arkansas choose to pursue or not pursue higher levels of education. The study will examine how education impacts the individual characteristics, families, and communities of women when they have access to knowledge.  Researchers are also interested in the roles education, health, and other nonprofit institutions, as well as policy-makers, can play in influencing and lifting a woman’s potential. Previous research has examined earning potential of educated versus non-educated women, factors that influence educational attainment, and other economic and social results of not completing an education.
