A Study of Selected Aspects of Centralization versus Autonomy in the Administration of Multi-Campus Two-Year Colleges.
Wynn, John T.
The development of MCTYI (multicampus two-year institutions) represents a contemporary effort to solve the problems of population impact, economic and social necessity. This study was designed to determine the current placement of management authority and responsibility, to determine suggested changes in the placement of management authority and responsibility, and to generally describe the campus chief executive as well as the institution. All 235 NCTYI identified in the "1971 Junior College Directory" were included in this study. Replies from 154 provide the basis for the conclusions drawn. To determine the extent of campus autonomy, a questionnaire listing 21 functions was used. It was concluded that: (1) each of the four types of MCTYI operate differently in terms of the overall placement of management authority and responsibility; and (2) if changes do take place in accord with changes suggested by campus chief executives, more of the 21 functions will be placed at the campus level. A copy of the questionnaire is provided. (Author/DB)
