A Scale for Measuring Campus Morale.
Robinson, Lora; Seligman, Richard
The development of a scale for measuring campus morale is discussed. Since morale has helped to account for intergroup differences in effectiveness, it might be a significant variable affecting the process and product of higher education. Twenty-two items relevant to institutional morale were selected from the College and University Environment Scales and used in the development of the morale scale. The scale was scored to yield a morale score for each of the Colleges in the sample and normative data were obtained using Pace's group of one hundred institutions, which reflects a broad cross section of American higher education. The morale scale was found to discriminate among the one hundred institutions and within eight homogeneous subgroups of these colleges. Significant correlations were found between morale and 37 institutional variables and this provides some support for the validity of the scale. (Author/RSM)
