Texas Community Junior College Research 1972-1973. Second Annual Report.
Texas Association of Junior Coll. Instructional Administrators.
Three research projects supervised by the Research Committee of the Texas Association of Junior College Instructional Administrators are reported. The first, "Selected Aspects of Internal Decision-Making in Public -Supported Community Colleges in Texas as Perceived by Administrators. Faculty Members, and Student Leaders, involved the use of questionnaires in determining differences between the perceptions of the three groups. The second, "A Study of the Management Systems of the Junior Colleges in the State of Texas," was for the purpose of ascertaining the relationship of perception between members of the administrative group and the faculty group in response to the Likert management systems (exploitive authoritative, benevolent authoritative, consultative, and participative) and to determine the statistical relationship of these perceptions to certain institutional variables. The third, "A Study of Factors Which Influence Minority and Non-Minority Student Enrollment and Persistence in a Community College," also studied characteristics of non-attenders, non-persisters, and graduates, using case studies and questionnaires. Three additional research projects completed or in progress are listed. A feedback form for comments and suggestions to the Research Committee is provided. (KM)
