Institutional Correlates of Faculty Support of Campus Unrest.
Bayer, Alan E.
ACE Research Reports, v6 n1 Feb 1971
Administrative characteristics for 301 nationally representative institutions are related to faculty support of activism (in attitude and in behavior) and indicate that faculty may provide the link between the incidence of campus unrest and institutional characteristics, independent of student body attributes. The consistently observed relationship between institutional quality measures and the incidence of unrest is considered in relation to faculty as well as student attributes. The results are discussed in terms of a currently employed model for a program of research on campus unrest that encompasses the totality of factors, both endogeneous and exogeneous, and that contribute to the incidence of protest. Alternative hypotheses of the impact of faculty on campus unrest are considered, additional necessary research on the role of faculty is specified, and other programmatic analyses currently underway on the various components of the research model are briefly noted.
