The Perfect Professor

Document Type Thesis


The purpose of this project is to identify the similarities and differences between student and faculty perspectives of "The Perfect Professor". Student preferences for professor characteristics may vary, but what is it about the students that causes them to think or feel this way? These predictors may be something such as a student's major, age, gender, race, or even whether or not they are an athlete. I have conducted a survey for both students and faculty to identify these correlating qualities and gather data in hopes to take the first steps that data analysts may then use to match students and faculty based on preferences and previous experiences.
