Key Issues: A Survey of AAHE (American Association for Higher Education) Members.
Hodgkinson, Harold L.
During February 1975, a survey was sent to all current members of the American Association for Higher Education; 1,701 surveys were returned. The instrument was designed to give members' respondents to a wide variety of contemporary issues in higher education. Items to which well over 1,000 respondents answered affirmatively were: (1) Institutions of higher education should provide prospective students with accurate information regarding employment in their chosen fields. (2) Most students would benefit from an extended period of time away from formal schooling. (3) Students today are generally more sophisticated about an institution's relevance to their economy, current student aid policies make it harder for the middle class to go to college than either the very rich or the very poor. (5) As admissions standards are lowered, academic standards are likely to become lower too. (6) Female students should not be excluded from the military academies because of their sex. (7) Of the potential useful research conducted in higher edication, very little is ever applied. Additional findings indicating both positive and negative issues and a copy of the survey showing total responses to each item are included. (MJM)
