The Faculty Promotion Process. An Empirical Analysis of the Administration of Large State Universities.
One phase of academic management, the faculty promotion process, is systematically described and analyzed. The study encompasses three parts: (l) the justification of the use of management concepts in the analysis of academic administration; (2) a descriptive presentation of promotion policies and practices in 46 large state universities; and (3) analysis with empirical data of the central control of decentralized business faculty promotions. Only eight percent of the faculty sample felt their present promotion process was well accepted and contributed to high morale. Results of the analysis of this study indicate that there is a lack of effective central control over faculty promotion policies and practices. Conclusions are drawn that have implications for academic administration regarding promotion policies, practices, and central control. (LBH)
