A Study to Determine the Participation of Evening and Part-Time Students in the College Governance System.
Chalick, Conrad; And Others
In order to suggest a method of including evening and part-time students in the governance system of Delaware County Community College, the author sent a questionnaire to the Dean of Students or related official at 32 community colleges in Pannsylvania and New Jersey to determine the involvement of such students at other institutions. Twenty-two institutions (69 percent) responded. In only 17 institutions were part-time students allowed to vote for student government officers. In 11 institutions evening students could not vote; at two schools evening students could vote only if they were full-time. At 13 institutions only full-time or day students could hold student government office; 12 schools reported that anyone with a cumulative average of "C" or better could hold such an office. No institution reported that students could sit as voting members on institutional committees. At 13 institutions students were appointed to institutional committees, rather than elected; usually they were appointed by the student government association or its president. Only four schools reported separate student organizations for evening students. Relevant literature is reviewed, and recommendations are made. (DC)
