Report of Academic Administrative Internship Program (September 1966 - March 1967).
California Univ., Berkeley. Center for Research and Development in Higher Education.
A 6-month program of advanced study in the theory and practice of educational administration and organization in US higher education was offered by the Center to 4 Mexican university academic administrators from September 1966 to March 1967. The program was designed to present a systems approach to college and university organization, administration and operations, with emphasis on principles that coordinate them under one authority. Other objectives included increased understanding of: long-range planning and coordination for higher education, the need for participation in academic planning and administration at and between all academic levels, the roles of administrative officers within the university and how they relate to the total program, and the importance of selective processes in faculty appointments, promotions, student selection, admissions practices, and research programs. The 4 interns audited 5 higher education courses and conferred with 52 educational administrators or faculty members on the Berkeley campus. They also met 29 administrators at 5 other UCLA campuses, and 42 others on field trips to other institutions in California. They participated in seminars, conferences, and a 3-day retreat during which they had an opportunity to exchange ideas with faculty members, administrators, and students. A list of 10 recommendations is included. (WM)
