Non-Differences That Make a Difference.
Martin, Warren Bryan; Wilkinson, Judith K.
This article deals with the concept of cluster colleges, one method of restructuring the university. The Center conducted a research project to determine whether certain attitudes, values and interests of students and faculty at cluster colleges differed from those at other colleges. Results indicated that cluster college faculty and students were more concerned about the institution's educational philosophy and were more knowledgeable about it than their counterparts elsewhere. They were also more open to change, innovation and experimentation in education. Because cluster colleges are new, innovative and must compete with institutions having traditional programs for funds, they must evaluate themselves and their goals to a greater extent. This accounts for some of the differences between their students and the cluster college groups. (AF)
