Seven Liberal Arts Colleges Revisited.
Russel, John H.
In the early 1960's the United States Office of Education, using a case study approach, made an inquiry into patterns of academic administration in the liberal arts college. Following a review of this first study and the 1973 followup study, individual reports for seven participating colleges are presented based on visits made between late March and early May in 1973. Each report begins with a brief summary on control, programming, staffing, and enrollments. The section on governance includes a summary of the roles and interrelationships of trustees, faculty, and students. The next section deals with the development of policy and its implementation in such areas as faculty personnel, curriculum, instruction, and budgeting. The last section concerns changes in academic governance at these colleges during the past 10 years. Colleges discussed include the College of New Rochelle, Juniata College, Knox College, Randolph-Macon Women's College, Regis College, Southwestern at Memphis, and Whitman College. (MJM)
