Annual Report, 1968-1969: The Junior College Leadership Program.
California Univ., Berkeley. Div. of Higher Education.
The Junior College Leadership Program, originally meant to supply administrative and research leadership for the growing number of colleges, has expanded its scope to include continuing development of administrators, a doctoral program for administrators and research-oriented educators, and a cooperative internship for instructors. Visits to participants in an institute were intended only to evaluate it, but uncovered also the need for an outside consultant source for presidents, for continuing development of second-echelon officers, and for immediate preparation of leaders from minority groups. Seminars have given an opportunity for college leader involvement and have shown the value not only of rapid transition from theory to practice, but also of theory in broadening the narrow focus on immediate needs. The doctoral program is intended to develop chief administrators, whose personal and intellectual qualities will be enhanced by a study of theory and practice, by original research, and by experience in an administrative internship. The Cooperative Internship Program is an innovation in teacher preparation designed by a joint junior college-university team. The interms, though ready to teach all students, will concentrate on the minorities. The program has tried to recruit them from the minority groups. At the employing colleges, they will carry a solid teaching load, but will also have time to prepare and research their material and to have contact with colleagues. (HH)
