Leadership Development Training Program for Administrators of New and Developing Junior Colleges. Final Report.
Auburn Univ., AL.
Auburn University (Alabama) sponsored a project to bring together persons from several Southeastern states practicing, or aspiring to practice, a particular speciality in junior college education. An in-service and a resident group were served. Sixty persons were involved in the in-service portion that consisted largely of a 2-week conference. The 26 individuals in the resident portion also participated in the 2-week conference, but continued for a year of full-time study at the university structured like an actual or potential junior college career field. Precise objectives specified for the in-service phase were: (1) improve participant competency in his specialty, (2) increase specialist-role awareness in the junior college scheme, (3) create appreciation for the junior college's expanding role, (4) encourage people knowledgeable about junior colleges to return to them and provide leadership, and (5) prepare some to lead in the development and operation of educational programs for the disadvantaged. The specific objectives for the resident phase included the above and the development of (1) leaders to solve Southeastern junior college problems, and (2) a procedure to maximize junior college leadership. Project organization, planning, and implementation to achieve these objectives are discussed, as well as the evaluation of the outcomes. Descriptive tables and charts of participant characteristics and instruments used in the evaluation are included. (AL)
