Summary

In an effort to determine how faculty viewed the student protest activities following the Cambodian invasion in May 1970, a questionnaire was mailed to 1,513 faculty members on 9 campuses in 6 states; usable returns were received from 552, or 36 percent. Sixty-eight percent of those responding viewed protest activities on their campuses as having specific "educational" benefits. The benefit most often cited was "real world education"; other benefits cited were: the impetus some activities gave to the regular curriculum, increasing student motivation to learn, a reexamination of the purposes of education, and a change in faculty-student relationship. Eleven percent of the faculty saw no benefits from the protest activities, and 79 percent expressed concern for the negative effects. Sixty-five percent felt the positive aspects outweighed the negative, while 23 percent felt the opposite. Seventy-seven percent indicated they generally supported the protests, and 52 percent said that they had made some changes in their classroom activities or policies. There was little faculty consensus as to the future effects of the protest activities on their campus. (AF)
