Faculty and Administration Goals: A Comparison Between Oakton Community College and Other Institutions.
Bers, Trudy H.
The Institutional Goals Inventory (IGI) was administered to full-time faculty and administrators at Oakton Community College (OCC) in fall 1974. In order to determine whether or not OCC responses were similar to responses obtained at other public community colleges, OCC faculty and administrator responses on 17 goal areas in the IGI were compared to the responses on those 17 areas by faculty and administrators at six other community colleges nationwide. Results indicated that the OCC administrators differed significantly from the other administrators on only 10.8% of the items. OCC faculty members differed significantly from other faculty on 53.2% of the total goal areas measured; however, 80.2% of those differences were found in the scale which measures what is perceived as currently important at their respective institutions. Thus, the OCC faculty may be considered fairly different from the other faculties surveyed regarding their perceptions of what "is important" at their schools, but the OCC faculty and the faculties at each of the other institutions were basically in agreement regarding the goals which "should be important." The OCC administrators and the administrators at the other schools were basically in agreement regarding the goals as they perceived them to be at present and as they should be. (Author/DC)
