Tomorrow's Higher Education Student Development Process Model: A Study of Levels of Agreement and Implementation Among Chief Student Personnel Administrators in Public, Small and Rural Community Colleges.
Floyd, Debbie Lee
In an examination of efforts towards the implementation of the Tomorrow Higher Education (THE) model for student development, a survey of 204 student personnel administrators at small, public, rural community colleges was conducted to determine: (1) the extent to which practitioners agreed with the basic constructs and underlying assumptions of the THE model; (2) the extent to which practitioners agreed with the process steps of the model; (3) evidence indicating that these steps are being implemented; and (4) the relationships between practitioners' agreement with the THE model and its actual implementation. The survey revealed that each of the process steps of the model was being implemented by the respondents to a lesser extent than reported levels of agreement with each step. The survey report includes background information on the development of the THE model; a review of the literature on the history of student personnel work, the student personnel and student development points of view, graduation preparation programs, proposals for practitioners, and contributions to theory and concept building; a detailed description of the survey methodology and analysis of its findings; recommendations for further research; the survey instrument (The Student Development Process Inventory--Community College Form); and a bibliography.
