A Proposal to the President to Establish a Year-Round Operation and an Annual Assignment System for Omega College, Beginning Summer 1974.
Reda, Mario R.
The purpose of this paper is the presentation of a proposal for a year-round operation and an annual assignment system (YRO/AAS) to the administrative officers of the College of DuPage, Glen Ellyn, Illinois. The proposal is comprised of four chapters. The first chapter deals with the significance of the study in terms of the College of DuPage's administration phasing out four-quarter contracts and demoralizing the faculty in the process. It then attempts to show how an all-college annual assignment would give the institution a year-round operation. It defines its terms through a literature search, and looks at other schools that are attempting a year-round operation. Chapter 2 investigates the administrative science theory for a rationale and philosophy for a year-round operation or an annual assignment system. It looks at management theory in the hope of bettering the morale and work climate of the institution. Chapter 3 provides the proof that the college can put the faculty of Omega College, a unit of the College of DuPage, on an annual assignment system at no extra cost to the institution. Omega College could then operate on a year-round basis. Chapter 4 develops an internal governance model and an operational scheme for such a program. It attempts to show how the year-round operation/annual assignment system follows the basic mission purpose of the institution. (Author/DB)
