University of Minnesota Research Bulletin, v15 n22 May 12 1975
The University Poll conducted a survey of the opinions of 740 randomly selected Twin Cities campus students toward 14 student services fees required by the University of Minnesota. Results from 624 students, 84 percent of the sample, are reported here. Key findings include: For no fee did a majority of students endorse an immediate reduction or elimination, but for only four fees (health service inpatient and outpatient care, Student Ombudsman Service, and Regents' Aid Fund) did a majority advocate an increase to maintain present programs in the face of inflation. Over 75 percent of the respondents were against having a regular telecommunications fee, although over 40 percent felt that they might be interested in using student telecommunications services in some fashion. Respondents were nearly evenly divided over a proposal to replace the health service inpatient fee with a health insurance requirement. (Author)
