CHIEF ADMINISTRATORS OF PUBLIC JUNIOR COLLEGES--A PREDICTION OF THE NUMBER NEEDED AND THE SOURCES OF SUPPLY, 1963-1973.
ROBERTS, DAYTON YOUNG
TO PREDICT THE NEED FOR CHIEF ADMINISTRATORS OF PUBLIC JUNIOR COLLEGES IN THE UNITED STATES AND TO EXPLORE SOURCES FOR RECRUITING SUCH PERSONNEL, DATA WERE COLLECTED FROM (1) BIOGRAPHICAL PUBLICATIONS, (2) QUESTIONNAIRES FROM 333 CHIEF ADMINISTRATORS, (3) PROFESSIONAL LITERATURE AND PUBLICATIONS, AND (4) STATE AND FEDERAL GOVERNMENT SOURCES. NOTABLE TRENDS WERE TOWARD INCREASING NUMBERS OF DOCTORAL DEGREES AMONG THE ADMINISTRATORS AND TOWARD A HIGHER AGE. ALMOST HALF OF THE CHIEF ADMINISTRATORS HAD COME TO THEIR POSITIONS FROM OTHER JUNIOR COLLEGE ADMINISTRATIVE POSTS, AND AN ADDITIONAL 8 PERCENT HAD BEEN ADMINISTRATORS IN 4-YEAR INSTITUTIONS. PRIMARY SOURCES OF RECRUITMENT ARE OTHER PUBLIC JUNIOR COLLEGES, PUBLIC AND PRIVATE SECONDARY SCHOOLS, AND PUBLIC AND PRIVATE 4-YEAR COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES. WHILE THESE SOURCES ACCOUNT FOR MOST OF THE INCUMBENTS AT THE TIME OF THE STUDY, THE DEGREE OF USE OF EACH SOURCE VARIES AMONG THE STATES. THE JUNIOR COLLEGE LEADERSHIP PROGRAMS ESTABLISHED IN 10 UNIVERSITIES WITH KELLOGG FOUNDATION SUPPORT ARE A PROMISING SOURCE FOR FUTURE CHIEF ADMINISTRATORS. AVAILABLE INFORMATION INDICATES A NEED DURING 1963-73 FOR AT LEAST 306 CHIEF ADMINISTRATORS OF NEWLY ESTABLISHED JUNIOR COLLEGES, PLUS 278 DUE TO TURNOVER. THIS DISSERTATION IS AVAILABLE AS DOCUMENT NO. 65-320, FOR $2.75 (MICROFILM) OR $4.80 (XEROGRAPHIC COPY) FROM UNIVERSITY MICROFILMS, INC., 313 NORTH FIRST STREET, ANN ARBOR, MICHIGAN 48107. (WO)
