INSTITUTIONAL RESEARCH BASES FOR ADMINISTRATIVE DECISION-MAKING, ANNUAL JUNIOR COLLEGE ADMINISTRATIVE TEAMS INSTITUTE, (5TH, UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA, AUGUST 8-11,1965).
LAVIRE, WILLIS A.
IN ADDITION TO AN ANNOTATED LISTING OF RESEARCH PROJECTS UNDERTAKEN AS A RESULT OF THE INSTITUTE, TWO ADDRESSES ARE REPRODUCED. MAURICE L. LITTON REVIEWED THE BASIC STEPS OF PROBLEM SOLVING, DESCRIBED THE CHARACTERISTICS OF GOOD RESEARCH DESIGN, AND URGED THAT THE RESULTS OF STUDIES BE SHARED WITH OTHERS. IN STRESSING THE VALUE OF USING THE METHODS OF SCIENCE IN DETERMINING COURSES OF ACTION OR FIXING BELIEFS, HE CAUTIONED THE PARTICIPANTS TO USE CARE IN SELECTING PROBLEMS, STATING HYPOTHESES, SELECTING A DESIGN, GATHERING DATA, AND DRAWING CONCLUSIONS. W. HUGH STICKLER DEFINED INSTITUTIONAL RESEARCH AS RESEARCH WHICH IS DIRECTED TOWARD PROVIDING DATA USEFUL OR NECESSARY IN MAKING ADMINISTRATIVE DECISIONS OR SUCCESSFULLY MAINTAINING, OPERATING, OR IMPROVING AN INSTITUTION. HE OFFERED SEVEN PRINCIPLES FOR DEVELOPING A PROGRAM OF RESEARCH--(1) INSTITUTIONAL RESEARCH MUST BE PLANNED, (2) RESPONSIBILITY SHOULD BE CENTRALIZED, (3) THE PERSON IN CHARGE OF RESEARCH SHOULD REPORT TO A MAJOR INSTITUTIONAL OFFICER, (4) INSTITUTIONAL RESEARCH MUST BE ADEQUATELY FINANCED, (5) AN ADVISORY COMMITTEE FROM THE ENTIRE INSTITUTION SHOULD ASSIST THE RESEARCH AGENCY, (6) FACULTY MEMBERS AND ADMINISTRATORS SHOULD PARTICIPATE IN THE PROGRAM, AND (7) THE HIGHEST LEVELS OF PROFESSIONAL ETHICS MUST BE MAINTAINED.
