Student Perception of the Campus Environment.
In the spring of 1968 Northern Michigan University and 28 other midwestern colleges and universities participated in a study designed to assess students' perceptions of their campus environment. The study was conducted under the auspices of the Central State Colleges and Universities (CSCU) Cooperative Research Program. Six areas were identified as descriptive of the campus environment: (1) academic environment; (2) facilities and services; (3) cultural climate; (4) communications; (5) community relationships; and (6) ethical and moral values. The inventory that was developed consisted of 150 items, 25 within each of the six areas. Each item describes a condition, practice or circumstance considered by the CSCU committee to be a desirable characteristic of a college or university campus. Respondents were asked to indicate the extent to which they agree or disagree with each statement using the following options: strongly agree, agree, disagree, strongly disagree, and uncertain or do not have adequate information to respond. The results of the study are presented in this document. (Author/HS)
