Programs focused a non-traditional student of this segment of population could enhance Marshall's position and create a positive awareness of the University.

This is a rather affluent population with varied interests that could be channeled towards programs that cater to their interests.

Fine Arts programs: Could receive a shot in the arm from this population segment. Life changes could translate into pursuits opposite of their current professional lifestyles.

Health Education: Awareness and quality of life enhancing programs could be geared toward the baby boomer utilizing University students and resources - creating educational and hands-on opportunities for students.

Offer Ph.D programs to retired professionals with their Masters who may pursue a career in teaching. This could assist in faculty shortages and provide experienced adjuncts.
