Conference for Women Administrators: Financial Management of Colleges and Universities.
National Association of College and University Business Officers, Washington, DC.
The process for organizing and conducting a conference of finance and budgeting in higher education is described in this manual designed for use by groups interested in developing successful conferences in their regions. The manual is an outgrowth of a series of conferences sponsored by the Committee for the Concerns of Women in New England Colleges and Universities (CONCERNS) and the Center for Research on Women in Higher Education and the Professions at Wellesley College. These conferences were directed toward women administrators in higher education and were held in 1974, 1975, and 1976. The conferences were intended to provide an opportunity for women in various administrative roles in academic institutions to share their concerns, to improve their administrative skills, and to develop associations with their counterparts in other colleges and universities. The introduction to the manual provides a preface, objectives of the manual, instructions on how to use the manual, and a sample conference schedule. Part Two, "Lecture Material," provides information on budgeting and fund accounting in colleges and universities. Part Three, "Case Material," describes how to use case materials, the structure of workshops, and fictitious Persons College case materials, such as budget worksheets, department requests, and priorities committee. Part Four offers information on conference planning and evaluation. Appendices include: women's organizations; visual aid materials, such as transparency originals; and handouts including illustrative exhibits, introduction to fund accounting in higher education, a bibliography, a glossary, and a planning calendar.
