The Role of the Administrative Supervisor of the Fine Arts Program in the Illinois Public Junior College.
Camp, Kenneth L.
This study was directed toward determining if uniformity existed in the role of the fine arts administrative supervisor and the fine arts program in the Illinois public junior colleges. Answers to the following questions were sought: (1) Is there a uniform interpretation of terminology among the fine arts administrative supervisors to describe fine arts personnel, activities, techniques, and procedures? (2) Is there a commonality of specific weaknesses and strength of fine arts programs in the Illinois public junior colleges? (3) What similarities exist in the established procedural roles of the fine arts administrative supervisor in the Illinois public junior colleges? Data were secured by a questionnaire mailed to 44 of the 46 Illinois public junior colleges, of which 28 replied. Answers obtained from the 26 usable questionnaires were analyzed. These answers showed that there appeared to be: (1) a variety of methods used to identify the fine arts programs at the various colleges, (2) a considerable difference as to which curricula are included in a fine arts program, with the exception of art and music, (3) agreement as to the administrative supervisor's responsibilities, (4) a direct correlation between the size of the institution and the strengths and weaknesses of the fine arts program, and (5) a direct correlation between the size of the institution and the number of full-time faculty and the number of fine arts courses offered.
