Urban Citizens and Their Satisfaction with a University.
Biggs, Donald A.; Barnhart, William J.
This study looks at the relationships between a number of personal and social characteristics of a random sample of 254 citizens from the Twin Cities and their satisfaction with a university. Participants were administered a questionnaire, the survey instrument. Results indicated most of the urban citizens had considerable University-related experiences, and they believed that faculty and students are sincere and hardworking. Most were satisfied with different facets of university life, endorsed the broad principle of campus freedom of expression, but were generally opposed to the goals of students when they used more active methods of dissent. Citizens' satisfaction with the university was heavily related to their perception of campus life as it related to the ideological criteria of work ethic and Americanism. A 5-item bibliography is included. (Author/MJM)
