Survey of Institutional Goals: Summary Report.
Dumont, Richard G.
As a step toward the development of their 1976 Campus Master Plan, Alfred State College surveyed its academic and non-academic faculty to determine their perceptions of institutional goals and goal priorities. In December 1974, the Institutional Goals Inventory (IGI) was sent to 335 faculty members; 208 (62 percent) responded. College Council members and the President were also surveyed. The IGI lists 90 statements of possible institutional goals and requests two responses to each statement--an "Is" response and a "Should Be" response. Both Outcome Goals and Process Goals, select factors which may influence the realization of the Outcome Goals, are considered. The faculty perceived only two Outcome Goals (Vocational Preparation and Academic Development) and one Process Goal (Accountability/Efficiency) as being currently afforded slightly greater than medium importance. All other goal areas were perceived as being currently afforded only medium or less than medium importance. Each "Should Be" score was higher than its corresponding "Is" score; however, the "Is" and "Should Be" profiles were generally similar, suggesting perceived and desired priority structures which do not differ radically. On the basis of survey results, a goal priority structure is recommended. (DC)
