ON USING AND BEING A CONSULTANT.
RATNER, MURIEL
MOST JUNIOR COLLEGES HAVE NEED FOR CONSULTANT SERVICES IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF NEW PROGRAMS. IN SUCH SITUATIONS, USE OF CONSULTATIVE SERVICES MAY HAVE FOUR PURPOSES--(1) OBTAINING SPECIALIZED KNOWLEDGE AND SKILLS, (2) SAVING TIME AND MANPOWER, (3) BRINGING TO THE COLLEGE OBJECTIVITY AND A FRESH VIEWPOINT, AND (4) EXTENDING RESOURCES BEYOND THOSE NORMALLY AVAILABLE TO THE COLLEGE. THE MOST EFFECTIVE SOURCES OF CONSULTANTS FOR JUNIOR COLLEGES ARE PROFESSIONAL ASSOCIATIONS, OTHER COLLEGES, STATE DEPARTMENTS OF EDUCATION, AND THE AMERICAN ASSOCIATION OF JUNIOR COLLEGES. THE USE OF A CONSULTANT INVOLVES CAREFUL PLANNING, AND BOTH THE COLLEGE STAFF AND THE CONSULTANT SHOULD BE THOROUGHLY AWARE OF THEIR ROLES AND RELATIONSHIPS. STANDARDS OF GOOD CONSULTING PRACTICE ARE PRESENTED AS THEY AFFECT THE INSTITUTION AND THE CONSULTANT. A FLOW CHART ILLUSTRATES THE PROCESS FROM THE TIME OF RECOGNITION OF A PROBLEM TO THE IMPLEMENTATION OF RECOMMENDATIONS. THIS DOCUMENT IS AVAILABLE FOR $1.00 FROM THE AMERICAN ASSOCIATION OF JUNIOR COLLEGES, 1315 16TH ST. NW, WASHINGTON, D.C. 20036. (WO)
