The Trichotomy of Research in the Two-Year College: Institutional, Faculty and Student-Community.
Scott, W. Wayne
Three discrete parts of 2-year college research are presented. Institutional research is defined as problem and student oriented research either general and theoretical or specific and practical, depending on the ability of the researcher. It consists of systematic and organized fact-finding activities which are focused on current and pragmatic problems, with institutional improvement as an anticipated outcome. Faculty research is separate from the institutional research. It enhances individual faculty members' abilities and allows faculty to keep abreast of current developments as well as to maintain a high level of participation in their discipline. The author disagrees with the notion that good undergraduate instruction and scholarly research are antithetical. Student-community research is defined as the combination of student learning experiences with participation in the solution of socio-technical community problems. Two proposals for student-community research are appended, as is a 46-item bibliography on institutional research. (MC)
