A Program for Leadership Development of Junior College Staff. Final Report.
Auburn Univ., AL.
This program was designed to meet the immediate needs of leadership and personnel of new and developing junior colleges in Alabama. The project was divided into two inter-related programs which emphasized use of a leadership team. The resident program required 20 persons, who represented five specialities in junior college education, to participate in a concentrated program from June, 1969 to May, 1970 at Auburn University, as well as participate in the in-service program. The in-service program consisted of 99 persons, administrative teams of several junior colleges, who met in a series of seven conferences of two days duration each throughout the year. The following conclusions were reached: (1) development of programs which maximize use of a team-approach in solving simulated problems adds realism and leads to elimination of barriers caused by specialization; (2) the consortium approach to development, program planning and execution is successful; (3) use of a common experience core provides the basis for teamwork and leads to a greater understanding of the application of specialization to common problems; (4) participants were pleased with the operation of the program; (5) there is evidence that participants plan to implement change at their colleges as a result of this program; (6) the internship experience must be carefully developed and supervised. Recommendations are offered based upon the experiences and evaluation of this program. (CA)
