Collins, Anne M.; Sedlacek, William E.
Full-time undergraduate student responses to the University of Maryland 1970 University Student Census and to anonymous questionnaires are summarized. Ninety-four percent (22,000) of the students took the University Student Census, an activities and attitude survey given annually to all full-time undergraduates. Approximately 5,000 new freshmen took an anonymous questionnaire on social and political attitudes during summer orientation, and a similar questionnaire was administered to a sample of approximately 5,700 full-time undergraduates during fall registration. Data are presented on the place of residence and employment status of students, student reasons for attending the university, views about academic policies and procedures and non-academic services, attitudes toward black students, and political and social views. Responses were obtained about campus demonstrations, U.S. policy in Southeast Asia, and university issues. (SW)
