Goals and Achievements of the ACE Internship Program in Academic Administration.
Creager, John A.
The purpose of the Academic Administration Internship Program is to enlarge the number and to improve the quality of persons available to fill key positions in academic administration. The program was designed to meet the following objectives: (1) to identify qualified people; (2) to select the most promising among those identified; and (3) to provide the selectees with experiences that would develop their potential to perform effectively in administrative positions directly related to academic areas. After briefly discussing the results of prior research on nomination, evaluation and selection, this report deals mainly with the results of the Career Status Followup Study, which included the sending of a Career Status (CSQ) to 106 former Fellows and 106 former nominees who did not receive the internship. In addition, the CSQ was sent to 83 participants in the ACE Academic Deans' Institutes in 1967 and 1968. The results indicated that there was a high intrinsic correlation between selection and experience as a Fellow and early attainment of a career position as an academic administrator. Some findings were also made regarding: (1) the nomination stage, (2) the dossier evaluation stage, (3) the interview stage, and (4) the internship experience. (AF)
