The Dean's Scholars Program At Wright College: A Preliminary Appraisal.
Smith, Ralph E.
This study elevated the effectiveness of the Dean's Scholars Programs (DSP) at Wilbur Wright Campus, Chicago City College (Illinois). The program--initiated in September 1966--provided selected freshman and sophomore students with opportunities to prepare for professional study through accelerated courses. The program planners hoped that the existence of such a program would attract more able students and improve the intellectual climate of the school. DSP course instructors, plus current and former DSP students, completed similar questionnaires concerning the influence of the program on students' attendance at Wright. Summary conclusions included the revelation that this program had little influence on attracting more academically able students and that DSP subject matter should be periodically scrutinized to insure that the students are properly prepared for subsequent upper division courses at receiving institutions.
