Abstract: The purposes of this study were (a) to investigate the extent to which faculty, administrators, trustees, students, and student affairs professionals rated the CAS Standards as important components of the current and future mission of the housing and residential life program in small private colleges, and (b) to examine the degree to which housing and residential life programs at small private colleges complied with the CAS Standards. Faculty members, administrators, student affairs professionals, and junior and senior resident students from five small private colleges in North Carolina were surveyed for the research data. A survey instrument was developed which was used by participants to rate the importance of the CAS Standards to current and future mission of the housing and residential life programs at their campuses. Participants also rated the degree to which their institutions complied with the Standards. T-test analysis of the ratings of each group concerning the Standards' importance to current and future mission revealed significant differences between each group's ratings, with all groups rating the Standards as more important to future mission than to current mission.
