An Evaluation of the Future of Student Affairs: A Guide to Student Development for Tomorrow's Higher Education by Chief Student Personnel Administrators in Texas Community Colleges.
Jolly, Richard Carman
A survey of the presidents and chief student personnel administrators at 54 Texas community college campuses was conducted in 1977 to determine if the Tomorrow's Higher Education Project (THE) model for student personnel programs could be implemented at the college level and whether such implementation would improve student personnel programs at Texas community colleges. The survey instrument used was designed to measure individual and institutional independent variables, such as academic field of preparation and the number of full-time equivalent students, and to provide forced-choice responses pertaining to the conceptualization of the THE model and its implementation at the respondents' institutions. Survey results, based on a 76% usable return rate, indicate that both types of independent variables had little effect on the administrators' evaluation of the THE model, that most administrators agreed with its basic concepts, and that most felt, although to a lesser extent, that the model could be implemented at their institutions. The survey report concludes with a list of recommendations for the implementation of the THE model at Texas community colleges. (JP)
