A Study of Students in a Multiversity.
Gurin, Gerald
This is the report of a large-scale longitudinal study that followed 2 classes of students enrolled at the University of Michigan through the 4 years of their college career. The broad objective of the study was to investigate the conditions and university experiences associated with varying outcomes of the students' 4 years in college. Part one of the report discusses a set of analyses relating to student criticism and protest. The second part has a more general and theoretical focus. It presents the theoretical perspectives that guided this study's approach to student friendships and organizations and the socializing roles they play within a university, and some of the analyses derived from these perspectives. The third and final part is concerned with analyses of factors related to career choice. In addition to the findings presented in the main body of this report, other analyses of the data were carried out in a number of doctoral dissertations in sociology, social psychology, and education. The orientations and major findings from these dissertations are summarized in Appendix A. (Author/HS)
