McCarthy, Frederick J.
In 1988, Jefferson Community College (JCC) initiated this series of brief institutional research reports to alert the campus community regarding information about itself. The first six issues present selected findings from JCC students' responses to a statewide student opinion survey. The survey, which included both standardized and JCC-specific questions, was responded to by 465 of JCC's 1,800 students. The research briefs focus on student responses regarding: (1) JCC's smoking policy and the school's affiliation with Fort Drum; (2) JCC's system for alerting students to their mid-term academic deficiencies; (3) the creation of a child care facility for the JCC community; (4) their use of the library, hours per week they spent studying, and their educational and career goals; (5) their voter registration status, drinking habits, extracurricular interests, opinions regarding the funding of intercollegiate athletics, satisfaction with JCC's transfer services, interest in on-campus housing, sources of financial support, and opinions regarding the need for particular community services; and (6) their satisfaction with instruction, the sizes of their classes, educational needs, the usefulness of student support services, experiences transferring into JCC, interactions with instructors, health insurance, and campus safety.
