PRIVATE JUNIOR COLLEGE ADMINISTRATORS--AN ANALYSIS OF THEIR BACKGROUNDS AND A TWELVE-YEAR PREDICTION OF FUTURE NEEDS.
JOHNSTON, ARCHIE BRECKENRIDGE
QUESTIONNAIRE RETURNS FROM ADMINISTRATORS IN 167 PRIVATE JUNIOR COLLEGES WERE THE BASIS FOR PROJECTIONS OF NATIONAL NEEDS FOR PRIVATE JUNIOR COLLEGE ADMINISTRATORS, 1963-75. FOR THIS PERIOD 1,077 KEY ADMINISTRATIVE VACANCIES (352 PRESIDENTS, 324 ACADEMIC DEANS, 281 BUSINESS MANAGERS, AND 120 STUDENT PERSONNEL DEANS) WERE PREDICTED. PRESIDENTS AND DEANS WERE EXPECTED TO REACH THEIR POSITIONS LARGELY THROUGH PROMOTION OR MOVEMENT FROM ONE COLLEGE TO A HIGHER POSITION IN ANOTHER. AT THE TIME OF THE STUDY, OVER HALF OF THE ADMINISTRATORS WERE OVER 53 YEARS OF AGE, LESS THAN 22 PERCENT HAD DOCTORAL DEGREES, 61 PERCENT HAD MASTER'S DEGREES, AND ALMOST 26 PERCENT HAD NO GRADUATE DEGREES. TURNOVER IN INDEPENDENT COLLEGES WAS LESS COMMON THAN IN CHURCH-RELATED INSTITUTIONS, AND ADMINISTRATORS WHO CHANGED COLLEGES TENDED TO REMAIN WITHIN ONE GEOGRAPHICAL AREA. THE AUTHOR CONCLUDED THAT THE EDUCATIONAL BACKGROUND OF PRIVATE JUNIOR COLLEGE ADMINISTRATORS WAS LOWER THAN SHOULD BE EXPECTED AND THAT THE PRIVATE COLLEGES FACED GREAT DIFFICULTY IN COMPETING WITH OTHER INSTITUTIONS, BUSINESS, AND INDUSTRY FOR HIGH LEVEL ADMINISTRATORS. TABLES PRESENT DETAILS OF THE FINDINGS ARRANGED BY POSITIONS, BACKGROUND OF PERSONNEL, AND TYPES OF INSTITUTIONS.
