Leadership Behavior of Department Chairmen in Selected State Institutions of Higher Education.
Schroeder, Glenn Burnett
The Getzels and Guba social systems model was used to develop hypotheses for obtaining knowledge concerning: 1) "real" leadership behavior of department chairmen as described by themselves and faculty; 2) "ideal" leadership behavior of chairmen as described by themselves, deans, and faculty; and 3) responsibility, authority and delegation behaviors reported by deans and chairmen. Normative data about the selection, administrative role, tenure, leadership training, and experience of incumbent chairmen were also gathered. Respondents included 52 deans, 118 chairmen and 161 faculty at 17 state institutions. The instruments used were the Leadership Behavior Description Questionnaire, the Responsibility, Authority, and Delegation Scales, and introductory questions. Conclusions and recommendations are presented. (AF)
