The Development of a Division Chairmans Procedure Manual.
Smith, Jack E.
The major goal of this project was to promote a process of self-evaluation and task reexamination for the 11 division chairmen and the dean of instruction at Los Angeles Harbor College. To identify needed procedures and to clarify responsibilities, chairmen responded to two questionnaires. The first was distributed to all members of the Curriculum and Instruction Committee of which the 11 division chairmen are the only voting members. Each member was asked to evaluate 61 selected college responsibilities on the basis of importance. The four responses were, in order of decreasing importance: (1) must recommend approval; (2) must be consulted; (3) may be consulted; (4) must be notified. A two-thirds margin in the two highest categories established 20 of the 61 given responsibilities as proper functions of the committee. The second questionnaire asked division chairmen to indicate their comprehension of 53 major responsibilities and the procedural obligations relating to each. Of these, 33 were identified as requiring either clarification or written procedures. The preparation of a manual of procedures for divisional chairmen is the anticipated end product of this study. Questionnaires results are organized into tabular form throughout, and the survey instruments are appended. (NHM)
