Citizens' Attitudes toward the University of Minnesota.
Biggs, Donald A.; And Others
University of Minnesota Research Bulletin, v15 n13 May 12 1975
A mailed survey was conducted of Minnesota citizens' views of goals and priorities for the University of Minnesota, their satisfaction with various aspects of the university and their familiarity with it. Responses were received from 409 of the 620 randomly selected citizens of Minnesota who were contacted. Key findings include: Most respondents tended to endorse a broad, multifaceted mission for the university. Within that broad mission, the most support was given to graduate and undergraduate programs oriented toward career preparation. Least support was offered for the provision of social events for students and athletic events for the public. Although large numbers of respondents felt inadequately informed to make judgments about the university, majorities of those who did answer reported being satisfied with the university system as a whole and with university students and faculty.
