An Analysis of the Satisfactions with College Experienced by Special Project Students, Primarily Inner-City and Negro, at a Non-Metropolitan University as Measured by the College Student Questionnaire.
Lounsbury, Jerald Elbert
The purpose of the present study was to determine whether minority students were more or less satisfied in their relationships with the faculty, administration, major field of study, and other students at Central Michigan University than were the majority students. It was found that the minority students were less satisfied with the procedures of the administrative offices and the way rules and regulations affected them than were the majority students. The other area of greater dissatisfaction for the minority students than for the majority was with their major field of study. The study indicates that minority students have an uncertainty in commitment to their fields, that they may have made their choices of majors just recently, that they may be unhappy with departmental procedures and the quality of instruction that they have received in their major fields. There were no differences in perceived satisfactions in contact with the faculty between minority and the majority students, and in the area of satisfaction with fellow students, it was found that there were no differences.
