Attitudes Toward Macalester's Program to Expand Educational Opportunities.
Rossmann, Jack E.
Questionnaire data related to Macalester's program to Expand Educational Opportunities (E.E.O.) were obtained from trustees, alumni, faculty members, administrators, clerical staff, and students. Data are presented that assess: (1) the perceived success the college achieved in relation to 12 objectives outlined in the original 1968 Faculty Advisory Council proposal for E.E.O.; (2) the current perceived importance of each of the original 12 objectives; and (3) the relative importance of institutional goals with relevance for E.E.O. Conclusions included findings that: (1) the original objectives for the E.E.O. program were still seen as important; (2) when discrepancies occurred between groups on perceived success, faculty tended to be low, and alumni, trustees, and administrators were on the high side of the success continuum; and (3) the perceived "communication gap" on campus widened significantly between the fall of 1973 and the fall of 1974.
