Abstract

The goal of this project was to analyze undergraduate student relationships with the private university from the perspective of students. I combined historical research, national survey and statistical results, and personal interviews to characterize student-institution relationships in contemporary American private universities. I concluded that intentionality is an essential component of healthy student relationships with the university. Without the ability or strength to make well-intentioned choices, students are disenfranchised, silent consumers of American higher education.
