An Institutional Analysis of K College: A Socio-Political Paradox and Retention.
Copeland, Large L.
An institutional analysis of Kalamazoo College written by an Intern in the President's office is presented. Examined are such aspects of the college as the board and its major committees; the operations of the President's office; students, faculty, administration, and staff; community involvement; institutional data; budget data; institutional policy; and the social, political, and academic climates. The three critical areas are identified: (1) institutional research does not have a natural tie to the computing facility and usually compiles data in a piecemeal fashion; (2) there is an attitudinal factor that prevents the college from diversifying--the college makes a national effort to duplicate its similarities; and (3) the college is experiencing a serious retention problem.
