Summary

The faculty and curriculum of 142 colleges were classified according to the six personal orientations of the Environmental Assessment Technique (EAT). The basic sources of data for this study were the 1968 catalogs of the colleges used by Pace in his study of norms for the College and University Environment Scales and the colleges participating in studies conducted by the American College Testing Program. The basic procedure used was to count the number of courses and faculty members which fell into each of the six personal orientation types. Three sets of profile scores resulting from the study were examined: (a) the original profile for the college, (b) the profile after elevation was removed, and (c) the profile after elevation and scatter were removed. The profile scores obtained which measure the college environment independent of student characteristics, appear to reveal differences in the emphasis given by colleges to various aspects of the curriculum, are fairly reliable, and are related to other measures of the college environment.
