Series consists of booklets containing course materials, including a general overview and history of the Family Life Institute, assignments to be completed by students, and student evaluations of the Institute. The series also includes student records, listing their names, the university they are attending, their student number, and their overall grade for the program; the students are listed alphabetically by last name. Some of these records are specific to individual courses (e.g., Education 522), while others are for the program as a whole. There are also records of grades over two semesters, followed by a final grade for both semesters combined. Some records present are specific to Dalhousie University, rather than the Family Life Institute, and some records are handwritten, rather than typed. The series also includes Inter-Office Memorandum records pertaining to the withdrawal of students from the program. The series contains course pamphlets relating to courses being taught from the years 1972 to 1979, as well as other programs and courses offered at different institutions, such as the YWCA, public schools, and the Atlantic Health Unit: Halifax Office. There is also a Proposed Guide for Family Life Education, which presents individual courses followed by a description of the concepts that the course covers, as well as possible methods of evaluating student progress. There are also course schedules, detailing when the courses will take place, as well as who will be teaching them. There is also an article titled Second Wives, which discusses the hardships faced by women when they are in a relationship with a man who has more than one wife.
