Because administrative organization has an indirect but important relationship to student learning and to the achievement of the mission of the two-year college, community college educators must be sensitive to the nuances of authority relations in their institutions. The articles in this sourcebook present selected approaches to the use of authority, including: an historical sketch of the evolution of community college organizational patterns; discussions of the administrative organization of cluster colleges and the role of the dean in such colleges; discussions of the advantages and disadvantages of management by objectives; an appraisal of the various ways to distribute authority so as to maximize the input of faculty and student leaders; a report on the administrative organization of a non-campus institution; a discussion of the administrative dimensions of multiunit institutions; and a report on an experimental program which as substituted a committee for the college president. Finally, a review of additional pertinent literature and a bibliography are provided. Contributors include: Barry Heermann, Jerry Burroni, John H. Anthony, R. Edmund Dolan, Mary L. Mittler, Ken B. Segner, George M. Britton, David L. Hamilton, Paul M. Hinko, Edith A. Freligh, Peter P. Smith, Joseph G. Rossmeier, George C. Corcoran, and Elizabeth Rinnander. (DC)
