Goals for Montana Higher Education: A Survey of 12 Academic Communities. Staff Report No. 5.
Montana Commission on Post-Secondary Education, Helena.
This survey of institutional goals of 12 Montana postsecondary institutions in one of several projects undertaken by the Commission on Post-Secondary Education to gather information on current practices and attitudes among various college constituencies. In this study, a total of 2,600 Montanans--student, faculty, administrators, trustees, and people living in college communities--gave their perceptions of what their college is (and should be) seeking to accomplish. This report is a summary of the Montana survey results. The general nature of the project and the Institutional Goals Inventory, as well as the technical details of sampling college groups and analyzing data, are described in the first chapter. The major part of the report is the second chapter, which contains 20 tables and discussion of institutional goals in terms of the responses of various college constituencies. Summary tables and commentary appear in the final chapter along with several policy questions suggested by the survey results. Appendixes include: the technical group on survey research, the Institutional Goals Inventory, the Institutional Goals Inventory statements grouped according to goal area, and guidelines for administering the goals inventory.
