AN EXPERIMENTAL COLLEGE IN A MULTI-COLLEGE SYSTEM--THE ROTATION OF ITS FACULTY.
ZION, CAROL L.
SINCE SOME FORMS OF EXPERIMENTATION ARE NOT ADAPTABLE TO THE TYPICAL COLLEGE OPERATION, A MULTICOLLEGE SYSTEM, IN ADDITION TO ENCOURAGING INNOVATION AND INSTRUCTIONAL RESEARCH, SHOULD CONTAIN ONE EXPERIMENTAL COLLEGE. WHILE LOCATED ON ONE OF THE DISTRICT'S CAMPUSES, IT WOULD HAVE ITS OWN FACILITY AND ADMINISTRATIVE INDEPENDENCE. A DISTRICT VENTURE, IT WOULD RECEIVE FACULTY FROM EACH OF THE OTHER COLLEGES FOR ONE YEAR OR, PREFERABLY, FOR THE DURATION OF THEIR STUDIES. ADMINISTRATIVE ORGANIZATION SHOULD BE MINIMAL, CONSISTING OF A DEAN AND AN ASSISTANT DEAN, PLUS A RESEARCH SPECIALIST WHO WOULD SERVE ALL COLLEGES IN THE DISTRICT. FACULTY WOULD SUBMIT RESEARCH PROPOSALS TO A REVIEW BOARD, AND APPROVAL OF A PLAN WOULD RESULT IN THE INSTRUCTOR'S ASSIGNMENT TO THE EXPERIMENTAL COLLEGE. THE STUDENT BODY SHOULD ALSO BE ROTATIONAL, THOUGH STUDENTS WOULD, LIKE THE FACULTY, BE REGULARLY ASSIGNED TO ANOTHER COLLEGE. BECAUSE OF EQUIPMENT AND FACILITY PROBLEMS, MOST OF THE WORK WOULD BE IN ACADEMIC FIELDS. SUCH A PLAN WOULD INTEGRATE THE EXPERIMENTAL COLLEGE WITH THE OTHERS IN A SYSTEM, ENCOURAGE EXPERIMENTATION, AND HELP TO RESIST INTERINSTITUTIONAL COMPETITION IN THE AREA OF INNOVATION. THIS PAPER WAS PRESENTED AT THE NATIONAL CONFERENCE ON THE EXPERIMENTAL JUNIOR COLLEGE (UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA, LOS ANGELES, JULY 12, 1967). (WO)
