College Administration: Concepts and Techniques.
Feltner, Bill D., Ed.
Ten colleges participated in a project to: (1) help organize and strengthen administrative teams in developing two-year and four-year colleges throughout the Southeast; (2) to assist administrative teams in identifying specific roles for each team member and in developing an understanding of team responsibilities; and (3) to assist administrative teams in developing a rationale that will increase efficiency in the functions of planning, policy formation, evaluation, and continuous review of institutional goals and their implementation. The ten colleges were selected on the basis of current potential, diversity, and geographic distribution. The three papers included in this document serve as a general introduction to the project and discuss: (1) the functions of administration in terms of leadership, planning, staffing, budgeting, coordinating, communication, and evaluation; (2) necessary changes in response to a more pluralistic society of diverse but co-existing cultures, including curriculum planning, recruiting, and admissions and the composition of the campus community; and (3) what has happened at South Georgia College during the two years in which administrative officers and faculty were involved in the search for a more effective approach to the operation of the college.
