University as a Theory to Practice Information System: A Study of the Communicative Behavior of the Social Science Faculty in a U.S. and Two Taiwan Public Universities.
Lionberger, Herbert F.; And Others
The central issue in the analysis of the data in this study is the ability of the social science faculty to contribute to the operations of the university as an information system. This means a contribution at all levels from basic science research to working with the public. The study attempts to determine: (1) the extent to which the efforts of the social scientists in one United States and two Taiwan public universities operate at all activity levels from theory to practice; and (2) the perceptual and organizational constraints that hinder them from functioning effectively at each. The universities studied were the Columbia Campus of the University of Missouri, the National Taiwan University, and Chunghsing University. Interviews were conducted with regularly appointed social science faculty members on all three campuses concerning their own university status, the organizational constraints under which they work, and their own perception of how much they think a public university should be involved in a variety of teaching, research, and service activities. They were also asked questions designed to elicit information about communicative output--books, journal articles, research reports, and the chief audience to which each was primarily directed.
