Review of a College President.
Dickson, Stanley; And Others
The chairman of the College Senate along with representatives from the administrative staff, the local council, and the student body developed this evaluation instrument to sample the attitudes, opinions and beliefs of the faculty, staff, and student body regarding the performance of the college's president. The evaluation criteria included: (1) academic and administrative leadership and management; (2) internal and external relationships; (3) the institutional tone set by the president; and (4) sensitivity to the needs of the campus and to the concerns of the faculty, staff, and students, and the college's image in the community. From these criteria, a 90-item questionnaire was developed. The questionnaire is divided into four sections: (1) items pertaining to the president's"Statement of Stewardship"; (2) items referring to a variety of characteristics identified as variables related to successful college presidents; (3) items attempting to assess the performance of Office for Academic Affairs, Student Affairs, and Finance and Management and their deans; and (4) items pertaining to general factors of importance to the college.
