Summary

Current graduate education, with its focus on tailoring programs for individual students, has made the relationship between the student and his advisor or committee chairman an essential ingredient of graduate programs. It is this relationship which the survey examines. Specifically, its purpose is to identify and examine graduate students' perceptions and attitudes toward their advisor or committee chairman. Eighty-one summer session graduate students in education at the University of Nebraska were surveyed and the data analyzed in terms of five variables; (1) male-female; (2) graduate major; (3) intended degree; (4) progress to date; and (5) response totals all variables. The evidence was broken down and evaluated. None of the variables were significant, i.e., a positive perception or attitude toward advisors and committee chairmen remained constant. The author viewed the results as indicating a high degree of trust and professional security on the part of the student and as verifying that graduate education is generally strong and positive.
