Reasonable Expectations: Renewing the Educational Compact between Institutions and Students.
Kuh, George; Lyons, James; Miller, Thomas; Trow, Jo Anne
The purpose of this paper is to stimulate discussion about what institutions and students can reasonably expect from one another to enhance learning productivity. Expectations can be divided into five areas: teaching and learning, the curriculum, institutional integrity, the quality of institutional life, and educational services. For each of these areas, a pair of complementary propositions is presented expressing the reciprocal expectations of institutions and students followed by questions to help determine whether these expectations are being met.
