Summary

Over 1800 entering freshmen and 238 staff members in three proximate but diverse community colleges ranked values according to Rokeach's Terminal and Instrumental Values Scales. The hierarchical designations were compared for all subjects on the bases of role orientation, sex, age, and major field of interest or subject discipline. Role orientation (staff vs. student designation) was found to be statistically more significant than any of the other comparisons. Stemming from the results of this study, a proposed clustering of values has been devised for use in future research. Five constellations of values have been suggested: (1) the belief in rational or cognitive man versus the irrational; (2) the belief in a personal God, a somewhat structured Judeo-Christian belief system; (3) the Protestant ethic--the notions that one must work for a living, give value for money received, be "practical" in orientation to life and work; (4) the concept of democracy, equal opportunity for all, and (5) the view of the person as an individual, having rights of his own, and stressing his individuality.
