Teachers and Students. Aspects of American Higher Education.
Trow, Martin, Ed.
A survey to determine attitudes of students and faculty members in colleges and universities was undertaken in 1969. The survey yielded data about the opinions of faculty, graduate students, and undergraduates in higher education: colleges, universities, two-year and four-year, public and private. This document uses that data to explore distinct segments and activities of the academic population. Chapters discuss: (1) general findings on students and teachers; (2) research activity in American higher education; (3) religious involvement and scholarly productivity among American academics; (4) black students in higher education; (5) undergraduates in sociology; (6) academic women in the United States; (7) marital status and graduate education; (8) the impact of peers on student orientation to college. Appendixes contain a technical report on the survey and reproduction of the questionnaires used in the survey. (Author/KE)
