A Survey of Social-Regulatory Practices in Selected Michigan Community Colleges.
Hollander, Martin Elliot
This study surveyed social-regulatory practices of selected community colleges in Michigan to find out: origin and extent of written social-regulatory policies and the provisions for change; types of rules of conduct; and communication and enforcement of social-regulatory practices and rules. The study was limited to commuter-type publicly supported community colleges in Michigan with enrollments of more than 1500 students. Data were gathered by interviews with disciplinary administrators, and from information in the literature, student handbooks, college bulletins, and policy manuals. Social-regulatory policies and rules were more likely to be reasonable and to be more readily accepted when students, faculty members, and administration shared the responsibility for their formulation and when they were written in positive terms. The extent of involvement of the faculty in the enforcement of student conduct at campus events was more and more being determined by professional negotiations and collective bargaining. Student probation and withdrawal of certain campus privileges were the most widely used methods of discipline. Criteria were listed as standards by which major social-regulatory practices of community colleges could be clinically judged. (NL)
