A Descriptive Analysis of the Evening and Off-Campus Population, Temple University Fall Semester, 1966-67.
Sackett, Duane Harry
This study sought (1) to describe the total population (fall semester 1966-67) of the evening and off-campus divisions of Temple University; (2) to identify evening and off-campus students' educational needs, goals, and aspirations, university needs, and purposes relative to its evening division, and the portion of nondegree evening and off-campus students for which the College of Education has or should have basic responsibility; and (3) to suggest for the College of Education an administrative structure better suiting the needs of its evening and off-campus students. Two questionnaires and the 1967 Middle States Report gave data on sex, age, residence, and other student characteristics and variables. Based on the numerous findings and conclusions, recommendations affecting evening and off-campus study were made for a clear statement of policy; a specific set of rules and regulations; maintenance of the existing vertical administrative relationships to day college; fuller administrative provision for off-campus, non-degree, and College of Education students; arrangements for statistical reporting, research, and evaluation; and systematic counseling and preadvising services.
