Community Impressions of the College of Eastern Utah.
Seegmiller, Jesse F.
In 1976, the College of Eastern Utah (CEU) conducted a survey of the general public, members of area educational associations, and businesses to determine if these groups perceived CEU as providing the services they desired. Results of the study indicated that the general public had, overall, a positive view of CEU. Factors most crucial in this group's opinions were (1) CEU social activities, (2) quality of academic instruction, (3) adequacy of technical training, (4) adequacy of transfer preparation, and (5) how modern the facilities were. Factors affecting educators' opinions were (1) CEU social activities, (2) quality of academic instruction, (3) convenience of CEU, (4) how modern the facilities were, and (5) length of time necessary at transfer institutions by CEU students before they could graduate. Factors affecting the opinions of the business community were (1) amount of personal attention received by CEU students, (2) quality of academic instruction, (3) adequacy of technical training, (4) adequacy of transfer preparation, and (5) convenience of CEU. While it was found that CEU enjoys a generally favorable reception throughout the community, results of the survey indicated that the college should expend more effort in clarifying its objectives and role in the community.
