Education Professors as Intermediaries.
Haskew, Laurence D.
The central issue discussed in this paper is the pressing need for specialized inservice and preservice graduate training for community college instructors. It is proposed that the large majority of successful inservice and preservice staff development programs now in existence in comprehensive universities are not due to the foresight or leadership of a Graduate School of Education or Graduate Division, but in actuality are the result of the efforts of individual professors of higher education who are community college specialists. The intermediary, or broker, roles for graduate professors dedicated to serving these inservice and preservice program needs are discussed. Political guidelines for generating interest and support among graduate departments and divisions for the initiation of such programs within the political and bureaucratic framework of the university are presented.
