A Study of Public Two-Year College Organizational Structure and Development of Technical Curricula. Final Report.
Nicholson, R. Stephen
This study examines the organization of public 2-year colleges and relates it with goal achievement as represented by curriculum size and complexity. The research questions concerned: (1) range and distribution of size and age in the colleges; (2) range and distribution of curriculum size and complexity; (3) the relation of increased size or age to an increase in curriculum size or complexity; (4) range and distribution of faculty size in relation to size and age of the college; (5) any regional differences in size, age, and curriculum; (6) range and distribution of administrative size and of centralized curriculum control; (7) range and distribution of departmentalization and operational levels; (8) relationship between administrative size, centralized curriculum control, and curriculum size and complexity; (9) relationship between operational levels, departmentalization, and curriculum size and complexity. The findings provide suggestions for answering the questions, but also post other questions for exploration and the development of hypotheses to be tested. (HH)
