Summary

This report is concerned with the relationship of professors and undergraduates at Stanford University. Its purpose is to create the substance for a debate about the quality of teaching and learning at the undergraduate level. The major themes of the report are: (1) Stanford's rise to national excellence as a major research university over the past three decades has had both positive and negative consequences for undergraduate education. (2) Only about one in every three Stanford undergraduates is satisfied with the present quality of faculty-student relations and the advising system. (3) Four important outcomes of the educational process are positively and strongly linked to the amount of interaction students have with professors. The incidence of these outcomes for Stanford undergraduates as a whole is very low. Four basic objectives are suggested to improve the quality of student-faculty interaction: an enrichment in the level and quality of student-faculty interaction; a restructuring of the University's faculty evaluation and reward system; a redirection of the Office of the Dean of Undergraduate Studies so as to increase its effectiveness as an advocate for undergraduate education; and a greater awareness by undergraduates of the benefits of interaction with faculty members, and the necessity to participate in the initiation of it.
