A Review of the Literature on College Administrators and Administrations.
Nash, George; Uhse, Stefan
A review of the extensive literature on college administration and college administrators reveals there are relatively few empirical studies in the field. It was also observed that: there is widespread agreement on a few broad principles; there has been a heavy emphasis on human relations and proper administrative procedures; there are fundamental cleavages that prevent college administration from becoming a single cohesive unit; there is a close identification of the president and his administration; there is a great deal written on the dissatisfactions of the job; there is little attention to the problems of lower level administrators; and no single legitimate authority has appeared which dominates the study of college administration. The 79 books and articles reviewed are grouped under 4 general headings: Studies of College Administrations; Studies of Specific Administrative Roles; Notes on Training; and Textbooks and General Articles.
