Abstract:

The purpose of the study is to determine attitudes of university faculty academic advisers at South Dakota State University toward the Reserve Officers Training Corps. The problem statement was, Do academic advisers, attitudes toward ROTC vary according to sex, age, faculty rank, and military background. The population of academic advisers was surveyed. The survey resulted in a response of 85. The advisers said ROTC should be offered to students. Ninety-seven percent said they would refer students to ROTC personnel if they did not have ROTC information requested by the students. Advisers were not sure they were doing a good job giving their advisees information on ROTC. Nearly 50 were in the disagreement continuum on the statement that academic advisers are informed about ROTC. The null hypothesis--there is no significant difference in the responses of individuals in the survey because of differences among the respondents in sex, age classification, academic rank, or military background--was rejected for six of the 24 Likert-summated scaled statements.
