Summary

A variety of departmental and student outcomes data was obtained and analyzed from faculty and graduating seniors in 27 academic departments located at a university classified by the Carnegie Foundation as a Research II institution. The purpose of the study was to determine: (1) whether strong research orientation by an academic department promotes or hinders student learning and growth; and (2) if differences in departmental teaching and research climates are associated with differences in the academic integration and intellectual growth of the undergraduates who major in those academic disciplines. The combined responses of over 650 randomly selected seniors, as well as interviews with deans and department chairs, showed that a vigorous research orientation by an academic department, particularly when combined with attention to teaching responsibilities, has a beneficial influence on the academic integration and intellectual growth of their undergraduate majors. Contains 29 references. (GLR)
