Perspectives of the Community College Presidency.
Morgan, Don A.
The office of the community college president and the individuals who serve in it are the concern of this monograph. Data were initially obtained through questionnaires answered by 438 community college presidents. Subsequent information was received from the presidents' wives, secretaries, and second-ranking administrators; deans, presidents of faculty associations, and state directors of community colleges or vocational education also provided information. The following topics were among those considered: (1) selection criteria and procedures, (2) initial activities, (3) sources of information and assistance, (4) functions, (5) personal characteristics, (6) most pressing problems, (7) reasons presidents remain or leave their office and where they go, (8) characteristics of the successful president and what could have been done to help those in difficulty, and (9) future areas for study.
