SUVER, J. ALLEN; AND OTHERS
TO DETERMINE THE TYPES OF RESEARCH PROBLEMS CONSIDERED IMPORTANT IN WASHINGTON COMMUNITY COLLEGES, A QUESTIONNAIRE SURVEY WAS CONDUCTED AMONG THE FULL-TIME PROFESSIONAL STAFF MEMBERS.

RESULTS WERE TABULATED IN FOUR CATEGORIES--(1) RESPONSES FROM THE TOTAL GROUP, (2) RESPONSES FROM FACULTY, (3) RESPONSES FROM ADMINISTRATORS, AND (4) RESPONSES FROM PRESIDENTS. IN THE TEN MOST IMPORTANT AREAS, ALL GROUPS INCLUDED LONG RANGE PLANNING AND THE MEANS OF MEETING COMMUNITY NEEDS FOR VOCATIONAL-TECHNICAL PROGRAMS. FACULTY AND ADMINISTRATORS ALSO INCLUDED IN THEIR 10 MOST IMPORTANT AREAS (1) DEVELOPMENT OF SALARY SCHEDULES, (2) DISTRIBUTION OF FEDERAL AND STATE GRANTS, (3) MATCHING OF COLLEGE PROGRAMS TO STUDENT NEEDS, AND (4) RELATIONSHIP OF TRANSFER AND VOCATIONAL PROGRAMS.
