Summary of a Study Which Examines the Current and Recommended Degrees of Faculty Participation in Decision-Making in California Community Colleges as Perceived by Both Faculty and Administrators.
Riess, Louis C.
An insight into the degree of California junior college faculty participation in decision-making was provided by obtaining the perceptions of state junior college faculty members and administrators. Each individual responded to a questionnaire containing 23 decision-making items by numerically indicating relative differences between current and recommended levels of participation. Of the personnel contacted at 81 state-wide colleges, returns were received from 111 (68.9 per cent) of the administrators and 171 (60.6 per cent) of the faculty. A comparison of group responses suggests the following conclusions: (1) both groups support greater faculty participation in community college decision-making on all items, though the faculty see greater differences between existing and requisite levels; (2) the faculty senate is seen by a majority in both groups as the vehicle for the most significant increases; and (3) the principles of participative management should characterize the decision-making process.
