Design for the Future. A Report from the Select Committee on Peabody's Second Century to President John Dunworth and the Board of Trustees.
Allen, Jack; And Others
The preface states that this report was developed from interviews of college administrators, staff, and students; from department self-studies; and from open hearings. The intent of the report is to present the framework for a changed administrative structure, a new academic design, and a system for policy determination. The document is divided into the following sections: (a) introduction; (b) organization and administrative structure; (c) academic affairs (divided into two subsections, academic programs and research, educational services and related programs); (d) student affairs; (e) administrative affairs; (f) development and college relations; (g) policy development; (h) personnel policies; (i) physical facilities; (j) summary. In addition to specific recommendations, the summary states that the committee's overall recommendation is that George Peabody College for Teachers become an institution totally devoted to the teaching and learning processes, to learners and teachers, and to those who plan and manage educational systems anywhere in the world; to accomplish this goal, irrelevant existing training programs will be eliminated and new training programs leading to professional certification will be developed. Appendixes include proposals for changes. (JA)
