The Role of Science Division Heads in Regionally Accredited Junior Colleges in the United States.
Pierce, Harmon Barnett
The role of science division heads in regionally accredited public and private junior colleges was examined in terms of personal data and background; role definition; selection, appointment, and status; general activities and responsibilities; administration; teaching; instructional evaluation; greatest obstacles to effective role fulfillment; and chief satisfactions. Questionnaires returned by 285 junior college science heads were used. Findings showed that, in general, the role of science division head is relatively uniforn from region to region in the U.S. and among public and private colleges; that markedly lower salaries were paid to respondents in private schools; and that public junior college science heads spent more time on administrative duties, administered larger budgets, and supervised more teachers than did respondents in private colleges.
