Authority and Admissions Policy at 118 American Colleges and Universities.
Portman, David N.
This paper concerns a study conducted to determine: where fundamental authority for undergraduate admissions policy lies; to what extent the chief admissions officer influences policy; whether a shift from one policy maker to another has been observed; and which constituent groups should be involved in formulating admissions policy. A questionnaire was sent to the chief admissions officer at 226 colleges and universities in all sections of the country. The 118 institutions that responded were grouped, according to their own descriptions, into: state universities, private universities, and private colleges. Tables illustrate discussion of the responses. (JS)
