Abstract

Human beings are social creatures and we rely on support from other people in times of struggle, challenge, and accomplishment. The aspect of family support is crucial in the negotiating higher education demands. This roundtable presents the preliminary findings of a study which examined the support and sabotage experiences of adult female students enrolled in a research extensive university in the Southeastern U.S. city. Two research questions that guide this study are: to what extent did the women experience social support during their studies and to what extent did they experience sabotage?

This roundtable presents the preliminary findings of a study which examined the support and sabotage experiences of adult female students enrolled in a research extensive university in the Southeastern U.S. city. Two research questions that guide this study are: to what extent did the women experience social support during their studies and to what extent did they experience sabotage?
