Mistaken Goal: Where Higher Education & Technology Meet

" is not something that happens to us. It is something we create. We must not confuse a tool with a goal. We must, therefore, be sure that technology serves the fundamental purposes of higher education." Stanley N. Katz in "In Information Technology, Don't Mistake a Tool for a Goal"

According to a study of 2-year colleges reported by Conrad and Bender (1983), larger colleges and universities have been using computers and computer information systems for an average of 20 years, compared with a 10 year average among smaller institutions. Thus, the use of computer in smaller institutions is comparatively new. With the introduction of microcomputers and the decreasing price of small computer systems, even the smallest colleges seem able to afford computer systems for student affairs work.

A national survey was conducted in 1983 at smaller 2-year college to provide in information to those who were interested in learning more about the use of computer in student affairs work. A summary of the findings is reported in this article. More information, including tables and charts, is available on request from the author.
