Studies of College Students and Alumni: Selected Dissertations in Higher Education.
Nyre, Glenn F., Ed.
This document reports eight selected dissertations in higher education each drawing upon some substantial part of a national data bank concerning colleges and universities. The data bank consisted of questionnaire returns obtained during the the calendar year 1969 from representative samples of freshmen, upperclassmen, and alumni in a total of 88 different colleges and universities. The reports cover topics concerning: upperclassmen's satisfaction with college; correlates of graduate degree aspirations; the relationship between religious background and intellectuality in college; major field transfer: the self-matching of university undergraduates to student characteristics; the personal and environmental factors in role identification and career choice of women; political participation and civil rights attitudes of college alumni in the class of 1950; alumni perception of educational benefits as related to college experiences and institutional types; and an analysis of outcomes of higher education.
