Selected Community College Intellectual and Environmental Factors: A Three College Study.
Gillie, Angelo C.
Three Oahu community colleges, Leeward, Kapiolani, and Honolulu, although under central administrative control and in the same city, had certain unique characteristics. They were examined for differences in student intellectual and college environmental factors. Leeward College specializes in pre-professional and general curricula; Kapiolani, in business courses; and Honolulu in trade-technical programs. This last is in the industrial section of the city and is expected to be the center for the poverty-level student. A 19-item questionnaire was sent to a random sample of 450 students from each of the three colleges (10% of the total enrollment). Data dealt with present employment status of the student, time spent in out-of-class study, interest in courses, difficulties in course work, quality of instruction, expected usefulness of present studies to future work, weekly activities, degree of freedom in school and opportunity to socialize. A Chi-square analysis was used to determine the relationships between certain factors and curriculum, employment, intellectual stimulation, and college attended. (HH)
