Barnes, Stephen F.; Meek, Doris A.
The final report and recommendations of the Commission on Student Life at San Diego State University are presented. The commission undertook a comprehensive review and evaluation of campus programs and services that contribute to student life. Specific tasks were as follows: (1) to examine all dynamic aspects of student life at San Diego State University in terms of expectations, needs, and program, service effectiveness; and (2) to review and evaluate the present administrative structure, staffing patterns, budgets, operations, and program emphases of the Division of Student Affairs, along with all other university departments and programs that are involved direclty with student life. Findings were to be elated to the following two concerns: whether students are being effectively served by the university and changes that should be instituted to ensure an optimal quality of student life now and into the 1980s. Study areas included: background; academic environment and student development; university life, programs, activities, and residential life; university policy; nontraditional students; student affirmative action program; international students and services; general student services; Imperial Valley Campus; and the Student Affairs Division. Recommendations are offered in each of these areas. Specific recommendations for campus information needs for student life planning are given, including those related to the expansion of the student population master file.
