Design and Implementation of a Governance Structure at the Faculty-Administrative Interface.
Burger, Vernon K.; Jelfo, Donald T.
This practicum report deals with a governance problem at the Eastern Campus of Cuyahoga Community College in its third year of operation. The problem was a result of the absence of positions at the faculty/administration interface and the interdisciplinary housing of the faculty. Position papers of task groups made up of an administrator and two faculty members were analyzed. The analysis provided a list of administrative responsibilities related to five goal areas of the college, as follows: (1) academic preparation for advanced formal study, (2) career preparation, (3) community services, adult education, (4) general education, and (5) education and occupational counseling, student personnel service. Recommendations made by the practicum participants are: (1) interdisciplinary housing should be retained; (2) two types of leadership positions, with different job descriptions should be established--cluster leader and division or program leader; (3) an extensive inservice program should be implemented; and (4) a committee composed of representatives of each of the campus constitutencies should be established.
