A Survey of Student Opinion.
Kroll, Herman M.
An important area of concern to university faculties and administrators is the effect upon students of the college environment. Are students pleased or dissatisfied? What is the source of their approval or dissatisfaction? The University of Wisconsin Center System sponsored a comprehensive system-wide survey of student opinion in 1975 for the purpose of learning more about its students and their attitudes and feelings toward their Centers. The Centers provide quality two-year liberal arts transfer programs in a small campus setting at fourteen geographically scattered locations for traditional and nontraditional students. The report of the survey accompanying this memorandum supplies empirically derived data from the fourteen campuses. In addition to data on student characteristics (e.g., age, marital status, employment, class attendance, family income), presented is survey data on how students feel about aspects of their respective Centers (e.g., students' influence, registration procedures, library resources, guidance, job placement, interaction with faculty, variety of courses, cost of books and supplies), as well as information about their academic and career goals.
