Summary

This study analyzed a variety of departmental and student outcomes data obtained from faculty and graduating seniors in 27 academic departments at a Research II University. The purpose was to answer two questions: (1) does a strong research orientation by an academic department promote or hinder student learning and growth? and (2) are differences in departmental teaching and research climates associated with differences in the academic integration and intellectual growth of the undergraduates who major in those academic disciplines? Study findings confirmed the notion that different academic departments would have variable research and teaching climates, and that there were direct relationships between department climate and student academic integration. The results also found 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 undergraduate majors. However, what appeared to affect student learning, development, and satisfaction the most were the vitality of the classroom experience, the student-faculty relationships outside the classroom, and the strength of student friendships. Contains a 46-item bibliography. (GLR)
