A New Approach to Academic Administration.
Phillips, Ellis L., Jr.
The Program of Internships in Academic Administration was launched in 1962 by Ellis L. Phillips, Jr., President of the Ellis L. Phillips Foundation, and author of this book. Mr. Phillips describes the internship plan from its conception through its four years of functioning and puts into historical and conceptual perspective the methods employed to find and equip men and women for positions of academic leadership. The program enables selected individuals to spend a full year working as interns in close association with administrative officers in various institutions of higher learning throughout the country. The author also analyzes major problems of college and university administration and presents various ways to educate new administrators, including formal instruction, short-term programs, study in higher education and theory of administration, as well as the internship program (AF)
