ADMINISTRATORS FOR AMERICA'S JUNIOR COLLEGES--PREDICTIONS OF NEED 1965-1980.
SCHULTZ, RAYMOND E.
THE MAJOR SOURCES ON WHICH THIS NEED SURVEY IS BASED INCLUDE AN ADMINISTRATORS' INFORMATION FORM DEVELOPED SPECIFICALLY FOR THIS STUDY, THE JUNIOR COLLEGE DIRECTORY, AND THE EDUCATION DIRECTORY, 1963-64, PART III. THERE WILL BE A NEED FOR NEARLY 3,000 NEW ADMINISTRATORS IN MAJOR POSITIONS OVER THE NEXT 15 YEARS, INCLUDING 1,403 PRESIDENTS, 1,507 CHIEF ACADEMIC DEANS, 956 CHIEF STUDENT PERSONNEL ADMINISTRATORS, AND 1,041 CHIEF BUSINESS MANAGERS. AT PRESENT, CONSIDERABLY LESS THAN HALF OF ALL JUNIOR COLLEGE PRESIDENTS HOLD AN EARNED DOCTORAL DEGREE, AND MORE ACADEMIC DEANS IN PROTESTANT-RELATED JUNIOR COLLEGES HOLD THE DOCTORATE THAN DO THE PRESIDENTS OF THESE INSTITUTIONS. THE MOST FREQUENT SOURCE OF JUNIOR COLLEGE ADMINISTRATIVE PERSONNEL, EXPRESSED IN TERMS OF PREVIOUS POSITIONS, IS FROM WITHIN THE SAME INSTITUTION. THIS SOURCE IS HIGHEST FOR ACADEMIC DEANS AND LOWEST IN THE CASE OF JUNIOR COLLEGE PRESIDENTS. TO MEET FUTURE NEEDS IT IS RECOMMENDED THAT INSERVICE PROGRAMS BE ESTABLISHED TO ASSIST AND UPGRADE ADMINISTRATORS ALREADY PRACTICING AS WELL AS FOR TRAINING NEW PEOPLE IN THE FIELD. THIS DOCUMENT IS ALSO AVAILABLE FROM THE AMERICAN ASSOCIATION OF JUNIOR COLLEGES, 1315 SIXTEENTH STREET, N.W., WASHINGTON, D.C. 20036, FOR $0.50. (HS)
