Mental Flexibility and Underlying Personality Predispositions of Graduate Students in Education.
Ciampa, Bartholomew J.
Graduate faculties are very receptive to the idea of their own talented undergraduates choosing to matriculate in the same institution's graduate degree programs. Since these students are known quantities, faculty members may prefer to work with them and may be focusing recruiting activities in the local area as long as adequate numbers are maintained to guarantee program viability. Concentrating recruiting efforts to a local area can result in decreasing the proportion of graduate students from diverse undergraduate backgrounds. Surveys assessing student characteristics and attitudes indicate that there are no significant attitudinal or mental flexibility differences between students who continue their graduate education at the same institution and those who matriculate elsewhere.
