Residence Hall Damage: Analysis and Control.
Scheuermann, Thomas A.
The problems of residence hall damage and vandalism are examined in this booklet. An analysis and control program is proposed to provide a systematic method of dealing with the problem. A list of basic assumptions held by students and staff on residence hall damage is presented for discussion. Problems created by damage to residence halls are also investigated. The problems include: atmosphere deterioration, facility deterioration, and staff sanity deterioration. Methods are also suggested for resolving the damage problem, including increased awareness, attitude assessment, incentives, and disciplinary measures. A three-phase plan for working with the problem is proposed and a flow chart is provided as an illustration. It is suggested that this program format can be used with a variety of residence hall staff persons and may be adapted for use with students. Appended are: a feedback sheet that may be used with the workshop format, Ohio State University residence and dining hall organizational chart, conclusions and recommendations of a two-quarter study done by the Ohio State Damage Control Committee, and newspaper articles pertaining to the damage problem at Ohio State.
