Administrative and operational patterns of college student unions were studied in 1986. Questionnaires were returned by 504 out of 928 members of the Association of College Unions-International in the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and Japan. A total of 88 statistical tables and narrative summaries of findings are provided. The survey dealt with a wide range of operational aspects of the college union and covered eight areas: physical plant, organizational structure, financial operation of the union, professional staff, general student union policies, relation to other college or university departments, student union facilities, and general information (general demographic information about responding institutions). Specific areas of focus include: approximate building size, construction costs, how policy and program boards are selected, student fees, food service and bookstore operations, organization of union programs, union office space, financing union maintenance, union maintenance positions, management responsibility for general campus activities, relationship of union and student government, facilities available to continuing education and/or conferences, union food facilities, and union leisure-time facilities.
