A STUDY OF THE GOALS AND CHARACTERISTICS OF EXTENSION CREDIT STUDENTS IN NORTHWESTERN MICHIGAN.
HAGELBERG, MILTON JOHN
AN ANALYSIS WAS MADE OF THE GOALS AND CHARACTERISTICS OF STUDENTS ENROLLED IN EXTENSION CREDIT COURSES OFFERED BY MICHIGAN STATE UNIVERSITY IN NORTHWESTERN MICHIGAN DURING THE FALL OF 1959. ALSO CONSIDERED WERE DATA ON STUDENT PROBLEMS AND ON CONTACTS AND RELATIONSHIPS WITH THE UNIVERSITY. GROUP ADMINISTERED QUESTIONNAIRES WERE USED TO COLLECT DATA FROM 130 STUDENTS REPRESENTING AN 18 COUNTY AREA. MAJOR GOALS REPORTED MOST OFTEN WERE TO INCREASE JOB EFFECTIVENESS, OBTAIN A TEACHER'S CERTIFICATE OR A MASTER'S DEGREE, AND OBTAIN AN UNDERGRADUATE DEGREE. THE DIFFICULTIES MOST OFTEN CITED WERE FINDING TIME, SELECTING COURSES, AND FINANCES. FIFTY-FIVE PERCENT HAD LEARNED OF THE COURSES THROUGH MAILED ANNOUNCEMENTS, 41 PERCENT HAD VISITED WITH THE DIRECTOR OF THE MICHIGAN STATE UNIVERSITY CONTINUING EDUCATION REGIONAL CENTER IN TRAVERSE CITY, AND 45 PERCENT HAD NOT CONFERRED WITH ACADEMIC ADVISORS OR PLANNED THEIR PROGRAMS. SEVERAL RECOMMENDATIONS WERE MADE FOR GRADUATE AND UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAM EXPANSION AND DIVERSIFICATION, PROMOTION, PUBLIC RELATIONS, AND RESEARCH. THIS MICHIGAN STATE UNIVERSITY ED.D.
