Summary:
The purpose of this study was to explore the perceptions of inter-campus relations by mid-level student affairs administrators of both main campuses and branch campuses, with a focus on a specific population from 6 of one state's public, 4-year or above multicampus universities. The study examined the relationships that exist between the administrators' perceptions and the variables gleaned from their environment and positions. This research study focused on the branch or regional campuses of 6 of the 11 4-year or above public universities of the state ofFlorida. A convenient, purposeful sample of mid-level administrators, heads of departments designated as student affairs, at Florida university branch campuses and their counterparts on the main university campuses constituted the population for this study. This study discovered significant differences in perceptions of the main campus and branch campus student affairs administrators as they related to the four domains. Campus location was the most significant factor in predicting the perceptions of the respondents. Significant differences were found on issues of respect; communication; authority over budget, staffing, decision making and policy setting.
