Goals and Achievements at Oakton Community College: A Study of Faculty and Administration Perceptions.
Bers, Trudy H.
In fall 1974, the Institutional Goals Inventory (IGI) was distributed to all full-time faculty and administrators at Oakton Community College (OCC). Responses were obtained from 98 faculty members and 13 administrators (84 percent and 81 percent, respectively). Results indicate that faculty respondents found Individual Personal Development, Freedom, Innovation, Community (i.e., mutual trust and respect among students and faculty), and Social Egalitarianism were the most important goals at OCC. They felt that Community, Vocational Preparation, Individual Personal Development, Freedom, and Democratic Governance should be OCC's most important goals. Administrator responses tended to be similar. They felt that Individual Personal Development, Vocational Preparation, Community, Innovation, and Freedom were the current goals, and that Community, Vocational Preparation, Individual Personal Development, and Democratic Governance should be the most important goals at OCC. Faculty and administrators agreed that Social Criticism/Activism, Public Service, and Off-Campus Learning were and should be the least important goals at OCC. In this administration of the IGI, respondents were asked to rank each variable a third time to indicate the degree to which that goal was being accomplished. These results are presented, as are discussions of all results. (DC)
