Description [Washington, D.C.] : Distributed by ERIC Clearinghouse, 1969 
4 p. 

As part of a study of faculty characteristics and their influence on students, questionnaires covering a wide variety of faculty attitudes, values, and behaviors were sent to over 1500 professors at six diverse colleges and universities. For this report, data were drawn from those collected on faculty attitudes toward student participation in campus governance. While the 1069 responding faculty were generally favorable toward student participation in the formulation of social rules and regulations, they were reluctant to share their academic power with students. Ninety-five professors thought that students should have an equal vote with the faculty on academic matters (equal vote group) and 41 others felt that students should have no role in the formulation of academic policy (no vote group). The remaining faculty fell between these two extremes. Both "extreme" groups were composed of committed and responsible teachers, but their responses to student participation in governance were found to be related to their educational philosophies, conceptions of and extra-academic contact with students, fields of study, political orientation, and involvement in campus affairs. The equal vote group had a liberal view of society and life and a positive view of students, and the no vote group was basically conservative and tended to believe that external control, motivation, and direction were needed in order for students to profit maximally from their education.
