Student Protest in the Junior College; A National Survey of Student Unrest and Protest Activities in the Junior College.
Jones, Milton O.
A questionnaire-opinionnaire survey of 68 junior colleges in 30 states, explored questions such as the amount and type of protest on junior college campuses, the extent of faculty and nonstudent involvement, the degree of institutional planning for protest situations, opinions concerning the relative lack of protest on junior college campuses, and opinions concerning successful approaches to student unrest. It revealed conclusions such as: (1) student unrest activities are primarily non-physical, centering around food service, rules on dress and appearance, student publications, and student representation in policy-making; (2) 20% of the respondents indicated some active faculty involvement in protest situations; (3) 90% of the student personnel departments have plans ready for possible protest situations; (4) 45% of the institutions indicated that governing boards had taken no action on protest situations; (5) the non-residential nature of junior colleges is the most important reason for a lack of protest in these institutions; and (6) that attempts to meet students' needs and to involve students in policy-making are needed.
