Consortium Research Development Program for the State University Colleges at Buffalo and at Fredonia, New York and Gannon College at Erie, Pa. Final Report.
Sefein, Naim A.
This report deals with the problem of encouraging colleges to engage in educational research. More specifically, it concerns itself with questions such as: What is the present role of the small college? What roles can small colleges most effectively play in the continuum of research needs? What resources are necessary for playing these research roles? How do the existing college policies and resources relate to those needed for research productivity? What changes in college resources and procedures are required for research and how can they be efficiently made? More than at any time before, society is looking to educational institutions to solve its problems. However, a serious shortage of researchers presents little chance that solutions to society's problems will be found. The existing challenge to education cannot be met completely by training more researchers. In addition to increasing the research personnel, the practitioners and the community leaders must be encouraged to join hands with researchers in pursuit of the desired solutions. Without the cooperation of all educators and community leaders, there is little hope that education can meet the challenge. (Author/HS)
