Students in the James M. Farquhar Center for Undergraduate Studies Respond to a Satisfaction Survey: A Comparison between On-Campus Students and Off-Campus Students.
MacFarland, Thomas W.
This study provided a comparison between on-campus students in the James M. Farquhar Center for Undergraduate Studies at Nova Southeastern University and their off-campus counterparts, with focus directed to a variety of survey statements associated with the University's compliance with accreditation criteria. On-campus respondents (n=98) and off-campus respondents (n=188; residence of 1 student was not identified) were at near parity in regard to overall levels of satisfaction with academic program and student services. Certainly, off-campus respondents did not indicate any significant disadvantage to residence away from campus. Prior assumptions that the Center needs to continue to expand resources and training activities to improve access to the University's technology-based information resource network were confirmed. Although off-campus students did not express the same level of satisfaction with the University's information infrastructure as their on-campus counterparts, both groups generally expressed satisfaction. It is anticipated that the University's current expenditures for technology and technology-related training will result in greater use and satisfaction with this evolving resource. The survey is attached. (Contains 7 tables and 17 references.) (SLD)
