Analysis helps people understand whether an idea is a good one or not, or whether a policy should followed or not. For example, there was a discussion on campus about giving the student government the responsibility to operate the student union. The university would allow the students to decide what restaurants and stores would operate in the building, how meeting rooms would be used, and other matters. Interested parties were considering whether this change would be beneficial. an analysis of the issues involved in a decision such as this one could help the decision makers understand what would be at stake, and they could then make an informed choice when they voted on the issues.
On your campus, there are many issues that you might analyze:
*Tuition increases: tuition increases at one school declined over a period of five years -on a percentage basis-but the cumulative increase for the five years was about 44 percent.
*extra fees: Why are they necessary? Where does that money go?
*Availability of professors during their office hours( and at other times.)
WRITING ASSIGNMENT: think about what is happening on your campus. Select a complex problem that affects you or others. Construct a report that analyzes the problem and offers insights about it.
