Student Values.
Stordahl, Kalmer E.
This study examines the social, political, economic, and cultural values of students at Northern Michigan University by using a College Student Questionnaire (CSQ) administered to a stratified random sample of full-time undergraduates. The variables were: sex, class, and residence. The CSQ consisted of 200 multiple-choice questions designed to refine a variety of biographical and attitudinal information about college student bodies into 3 categories: Liberalism, defined as a political-economic-social value dimension; Social Conscience, defined as moral concern about perceived social injustice and "institutional wrongdoing;" and Cultural Sophistication, which referred to a sensibility to ideas and art forms. On Liberalism the NMU students scored slightly more conservative than most student bodies; on the Social Conscience scale the NMU students scored slightly, but not significantly, higher than the norm group; and on the Cultural Sophistication scale NMU women scored slightly lower while NMU men scored significantly lower than the norm.
