Accountability in the Community College: Proceedings of the Annual International Summer Institute (2nd, Ontario, August 19-21, 1971).
Delgrosso, George M., Ed.
The proceedings of this institute, focusing on the opportunities and implications of accountability in community college education, include the eight papers presented as well as the speeches of the four keynote speakers. Several themes and ideas about accountability recur in the papers including the basic questions of "accountability to whom?" and "accountability for what purpose?" Accountability at all levels--local, state and provincial, and national--were discussed, as well as "performance evaluation" of college personnel. The necessity of determining specific learning objectives was mentioned as a method of accountability to students and to the public as well as a method of faculty evaluation. Two speakers described the specific management practices used to improve accountability in their colleges, while two other papers concerned accountability in Canada and England. (LP)
