THE ROLE OF THE CHAIRMAN--PROBLEMS OF ADMINISTRATIVE CHANGE.
RICE, WARNER G.
ALTHOUGH THE PROBLEMS OF CHAIRMEN DIFFER DEPENDING ON THE SIZE AND NATURE OF THE INSTITUTION, TOO LITTLE ATTENTION IS PAID TO THESE DIFFERENCES IN THE RECRUITING OF A CHAIRMAN. IN ORDER TO FILL A VACANT CHAIRMANSHIP ADEQUATELY, A PROGRAM SHOULD BE SET UP TO INDUCT THOSE WITH THE RIGHT TALENTS AND INCLINATIONS INTO MINOR ADMINISTRATIVE POSITIONS, AND FORM A CADRE FROM WHICH PRINCIPAL ADMINISTRATIVE OFFICERS MAY BE DRAWN. SUCH TRAINING IS IMPORTANT BECAUSE (1) ROTATION AND SHORT-TERM APPOINTMENTS ARE OBSOLETE, AND THERE IS A LACK OF SYSTEMATIC PROGRAMS OF INDUCTION, (2) THE MANAGERIAL REVOLUTION IN EDUCATION IS INCREASING THE IMPORTANCE OF ADMINISTRATIVE AND EXECUTIVE FUNCTIONS, AND (3) THE ENGLISH DEPARTMENT CHAIRMAN CAN FULFILL A LARGER ROLE ONLY IF HE IS GIVEN PREVIOUS TRAINING IN PROFESSIONAL RESPONSIBILITIES. THIS ARTICLE APPEARED IN "THE ADE BULLETIN," NUMBER 16, NOVEMBER 1967, PAGES 5-7. (BN)
