The Role of the Illinois Public Community College President and Recent Change Perceived by the President, the Board Member, the Administration, the Faculty, and the Student.
Scott, Thomas R.
The study investigated the role activities of the community college president. Data were collected from a questionnaire distributed among the 48 community colleges in Illinois in 1975. In all, 312 persons at 29 participating colleges completed useable questionnaires. The data indicated that: (1) the present college president's perceived role activity expectations are different according to the perception of presidents, board members, administrators, faculty, and students; (2) their perceived role activity expectations are not different when analyzed by size of college; (3) their perceived role activities are not different when analyzed by type of college--rural/urban; and (4) their perceived role activities are different as perceived by presidents, board members, administrators, faculties, and students whether the president is performing or not performing his role activities. A total of 19 items were significant beyond the .05 level when examined by status groups; 3 items were significant when examined by enrollment; 4 items were significant when examined by type of college; and 20 items were significant when examined the second time by status groups. It was evident that, of the independent variables of status groups, enrollment, and type of college, significant differences existed primarily in the area of status groups. (JR)
