THE STUDENT AND CAMPUS CLIMATES OF LEARNING. NEW DIMENSIONS IN HIGHER EDUCATION, NUMBER 18.
FREEDMAN, MERVIN B.
CURRENT BELIEFS ABOUT THE EXTENT OF THE INFLUENCE OF COLLEGE EXPERIENCE WERE SURVEYED BY A REVIEW OF REPORTED RESEARCH. THE PRINCIPAL CONCLUSIONS FORMULATED BY THE AUTHOR FROM THE LITERATURE STUDIED WERE (1) THE OUTCOME OF COLLEGE EDUCATION IS LIKELY TO BE A COMPROMISE BETWEEN THE CHARACTERISTICS OF ENTERING FRESHMEN AND THE IDEALS OF LIBERAL EDUCATION, (2) WHILE THE IMPACT OF THE COLLEGE EXPERIENCE ON AN INDIVIDUAL STUDENT IS NOT LIKELY TO BE LARGE, HIGHER EDUCATION DOES EXERT A PROFOUND INFLUENCE ON AMERICAN LIFE, (3) CHANGES THAT OCCUR IN STUDENTS DURING THE COLLEGE YEARS REFLECT THE NATIONAL OR INTERNATIONAL ETHOS, AND THE ATTITUDES AND VALUES WITH WHICH STUDENTS LEAVE COLLEGE TEND TO HAVE CONSIDERABLE PERSISTENCE, (4) CURRENT STUDENTS MANIFEST TRENDS IN THE DIRECTION OF INTERDISCIPLINARY STUDIES, UNITY OF SCHOLARSHIP AS OPPOSED TO SPECIALIZATION, AND CONCERN WITH MORAL AND ETHICAL ISSUES, (5) STUDENTS ARE SWAYED MORE BY FELLOW STUDENTS THAN BY ANY OTHER FORCE, (6) ALTHOUGH, STUDENT SOCIETY AND CULTURE ARE THE MOST IMPORTANT COLLEGE INFLUENCE, THE MOST IMPORTANT DETERMINANTS OF THE OUTCOME OF COLLEGE EXPERIENCE ARE THE CHARACTERISTICS OF THE ENTERING STUDENT, AND (7) A REVIVAL OF INTEREST IN EXPERIMENTAL COLLEGES AND PROGRAMS IS STIMULATING NEW EFFORTS TO EXPLORE WAYS TO ENSURE CLOSE RELATIONS BETWEEN STUDENTS AND FACULTY THAT CAN, PERHAPS, MAKE THE INFLUENCE OF THE COLLEGE MORE PERTINENT AND SIGNIFICANT.
