Collective Bargaining; Attitudes of College Presidents Compared with Presidents' of Academic Senates. OIR-75-25.
Garlock, Jerry C.
A questionnaire on collective bargaining was sent to California community college presidents and presidents of academic senates in the spring of 1975. Respondents included 101 college presidents and 101 presidents of academic senates. The questionnaire consisted of 22 statements, about which respondents were to express their degree of agreement on a five point scale. Data were subjected to probability analysis by means of the chi-square statistic to determine significant differences between the two groups responding. Only three comparisons between college presidents and academic senate presidents showed no significant differences. Two comparisons showed significant differences only at the 5 percent level of confidence. All other comparisons were significant at the 1 percent level of confidence. Listed with the greatest difference first, college presidents and academic senate presidents disagreed on statements including these: collective bargaining will destroy or significantly weaken the collegiality of the institution; presidents should directly participate in collective bargaining negotiations; collective bargaining will have a beneficial effect on higher education; collective bargaining will bring the faculty and board closer together. A comparison of the percentage results of the questionnaire is appended. (NHM)
