Summary

This study used a Delphi survey to examine what undergraduate student government leaders think about increasing student involvement in self-governance activities. Twenty-students from geographically diverse institutions of higher education participated in the three rounds of the Delphi study. They generated a total of 56 different strategies and techniques for increasing student participation. They achieved consensus on 15 strategies centered on three general themes: publicity, structure and process, and attitudes. Students believed that undergraduate student involvement could be increased by creating a positive image on campus for student leaders, creating a student government structure that accomplishes its goals, and having administrators respect the decisions of student government units. No significant differences were found between the perceptions of student leaders at research-oriented universities and at liberal arts colleges. Attached tables detail the study's findings. (Contains 16 references.) (DB)
