Perceptions of University Academic Department Chairmen as Related to the Degree of Participation of University Departments in Continuing Education.
Hale, Larry Avon
This study examined perceptions and opinions of academic departmental chairmen in the University of Missouri regarding the participation of academic departments in continuing education (defined to include all off campus programs and all on campus noncredit programs). Major differences were sought, and found, between chairmen of high participation and low participation departments as to the university's continuing education role, internal and external relations, research and continuing education relationships, personnel, administration and organization, curriculum, and financing. Further research was recommended on critical aspects where differences exist in views of continuing education, on differences in the number of responses by chairmen of high and low participation departments, and on building a theory of the assimilation of continuing education into a university. (The document includes the questionnaire, statistical test formulas, a bibliography, and 68 tables.) (Author/LY)
