Human Values and Institutional Purpose: A Comparative Analysis of Values Held By Students, Faculty and Administration at a Private College in Puerto Rico. Societal Factors.
Calem, Leonore
The Rokeach Value Survey was administered to a randomly selected group of first year students, the faculty and the administration of a private, four-year college located in a semi-rural area in Puerto Rico. The purpose of the test was to determine how congruent were the values held by the members of the college community with those implied by the goal statements of the college. It was discovered that while the faculty and administration held values relatively in accord with the stated democratic, egalitarian, and innovative philosophy of the college, the students demonstrated a tendency toward passivity and an authoritarian value system. Recommendations for faculty orientation and curricular development for dealing with the situation were made. (Author)
