Abstract

Although qualitative research methods are receiving increasing attention for their usefulness in exploring and understanding some of the traditionally hard-to-measure characteristics of institutions of higher education, qualitative methods have been used only occasionally to study student life in colleges and universities. Examples of qualitative investigations involving multiple investigators are especially rare, despite their potential for providing in-depth understanding and broad comparisons of institutional contexts. This paper describes a team approach to qualitative multi-site research.
