Practices and Institutional Effects of Function-Implementation by the Professional Staff of Statewide Coordinating Agencies for Public Junior Colleges.
Stuckman, Jeffrey Alan
The implementation of selected coordinating functions by the professional staffs of state Junior College Boards in Florida and Illinois, and effects of the implementation practices on individual community-junior college integrity were investigated in this study. A survey of the literature revealed the generally recognized functions for which state coordinating agencies are responsible. Subsequent communication with the two state college boards identified eight coordinating functions common to both of them, and the methods of implementation. These common functions were differentiated into four main categories: planning, budgeting and finance, programs, and physical facilities. Junior college presidents in the two states were queried on the effects these implementation practices would have on the institutions they administered. Using this information, a comparison of each board's implementation guidelines and practices was made. The comparison indicated the effect of these practices both on the operation of state junior colleges and on the colleges' relationships with others in their state system. Findings of the study are presented in terms of long-range planning, program planning responsibility, operating and capital fund allocation, accounting and budgeting procedures, student transfer agreements, accreditation requirements, project priority, building plan review, authority placement, and institution-agency cooperation and conflict.
