A New Leadership Program for State Level Community Junior College Professional Staff.
Schultz, Raymond E.; Wattenbarger, James L.
Junior College Journal, v39 n2 October 1968
Junior college activities are coordinated directly by 35 states and by universities in 9 states, while 6 states have no visible agency for the purpose. Existing staffs consist mainly of newcomers, and literature on statewide control is limited. Forces that are increasing state control over local activities include: (1) the shift of financing to state and federal sources, (2) centralization resulting from the search for efficiency, (3) recognition of the value of overall planning, and (4) reemphasis on statewide standardization of performance. To preserve local control: (1) identify the best state leaders, (2) define authority and responsibility, (3) clarify the principles used to establish state and local policy jurisdictions, and (4) describe quality education and assure its existence. In September 1968, the Kellogg Foundation funded a 3-year junior college leadership program at the University of Florida and Florida State University, consisting of (1) annual workshops, (2) in-service training for state agency professional staff, (3) action research studies of basic information, best practices, and normative aspects of junior colleges, and (4) pre-service training in the form of graduate research assistantships for high-potential students.
