THE JUNIOR COLLEGE ENVIRONMENT--L.A.C.C. STUDENT AND FACULTY PREFERENCES, STUDENT PERCEPTIONS OF L.A.C.C.
GOLD, BENJAMIN K.
THIS IS A PART OF A FEDERALLY FINANCED PROJECT, DESIGNED TO ANALYZE THE RELATIONSHIPS AMONG KEY CHARACTERISTICS OF THE COMMUNITY, THE COLLEGE ATMOSPHERE OR ENVIRONMENT, AND THE COLLEGE OUTPUT. LOS ANGELES CITY COLLEGE CONTRIBUTED DATA ON 200 STUDENTS AND 50 FACULTY MEMBERS, TAKEN FROM A 300-ITEM QUESTIONNAIRE. THIS SUMMARY REPORT, WHILE PERMITTING COMPARISON WITH OTHER PARTICIPATING COLLEGES, SHOWS PRIMARILY HOW LACC STUDENTS AND FACULTY PERCEIVE THEIR ENVIRONMENT, BOTH BY PREFERENCE AND IN REALITY. ONE GROUP OF 100 STUDENTS GAVE ONLY TRUE OR FALSE RESPONSES TO EACH ITEM OF DESCRIPTION CONCERNING THE SCHOOL. THE OTHER 100 AND THE 50 FACULTY MEMBERS INDICATED ONLY THEIR DEGREE OF PREFERENCE (ON A 5-POINT SCALE) FOR EACH ITEM. THE ITEMS WERE CLASSIFIED AS STUDENT OPINION, STUDENT PREFERENCE AND FACULTY PREFERENCE. IN THE STUDENT OPINION GROUP, AFTER FACTORIAL ANALYSIS OF THE ITEMS, LACC RANKED LOW ON CONVENTIONALITY, HIGH ON INTERNALIZATION, AND AT THE MEDIAN ON MATURATION, WHILE LEADING ALL 100 COLLEGES IN HUMANISM. THE STUDENT PREFERENCE SHOWED LACC AT THE 25TH PERCENTILE IN SCHOLARSHIP AND INTELLECTUAL ENVIRONMENT, AND AT THE 69TH PERCENTILE IN SOCIABILITY. FACULTY PREFERENCE WAS FOR RESPONSIBLE, ENERGETIC STUDENTS AND FACULTY, AND FOR SUCH COLLEGE SERVICES AS GUIDANCE AND JOB PLACEMENT, LIBRARIES, LABORATORIES, AND CULTURAL ACTIVITIES. TABLES SHOW LACC IN COMPARISON WITH THE OTHER PARTICIPATING COLLEGES AND DETAILS OF ITS OWN RESPONSES TO THE QUESTIONNAIRE. (HH)
