Millennial College Student Perception of, Satisfaction with, and Expectations for Future Parental Involvement
Jason, Greer Blei
ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, Fordham University
The purpose of the study was to explore college students' perceptions of the input and involvement that their parents have in their daily lives, their satisfaction with this involvement, and their expectations for parental involvement upon graduation. To explore these questions, the study used survey data collected from students at a Catholic university who completed an online questionnaire. Descriptive statistics, correlations, ANOVAs, and multiple regressions were used to analyze the data. Students generally perceived parent involvement in some areas more than others; overall, were satisfied with their parent involvement; and, as a whole, expected either consistent or slightly less involvement upon graduation. Results and implications for the field contribute to the knowledge upon which professionals at colleges and universities can rely when shaping relationships with both students and parents to assist in the student development process, promote independence, hone decision making skills, and maximize success.
