Institutional Self-Analysis and Long-Range Planning in a Small Liberal Arts College. Part II-- Study Procedure.
Frame, Stanley M.
In the Spring of 1969, Bethany Nazarene College started an intensive self evaluation effort, called the Ten-Year Advance Study. Part I of the report, the Study Design, was published in October 1969. This study, Part II, relates the study activities, the methodology, and sources consulted. The effort involved over 120 administrators, faculty, students, and members of the board of trustees. Seven study committees reviewed local practices, as well as trends in the literature and on other campuses. The areas of study were philosophy and objectives of the institution, instruction, students, faculty, physical facilities, business and finance, and administration. A resources committee collected and indexed 254 books, 366 articles, over 200 microfiche, college catalogs and self studies from 70 schools. In addition, study committees utilized data from 14 locally developed questionnaires. Five consultants assisted in one day workshop sessions. The study procedure, comments on the year's experiences, and an appendix citing useful data sources are included. (Author/AF)
