A Management Model for Establishing a Graduate Center of Cross-Cultural Studies.
This model is an abstraction of a content and process model proposed and partially implemented at Southern Connecticut State College for establishing a Graduate Center of Cross-Cultural Studies. Outlined in the model are: (1) major objectives for the Graduate Center of Cross-Cultural Studies; (2) college inputs (organization, resources to be utilized and developed, learning centers, and support systems); (3) tasks to be accomplished (expanding research capacity, facilitating effective communications and feedback for self-renewal, providing a service for elementary and secondary schools and community colleges, utilizing more effective teaching methodologies, training an expanding corpus of educators); (4) course and symposium development guidelines (role definitions for course teachers and symposium section teachers); (5) stages of course development (list of courses and related activities for the first and second year); and (6) development of a Graduate Cross-Cultural Center within a two-year period. This model can be most useful for those seeking to organize and implement a cross-cultural program at their colleges or universities. (Author/PG)
