Departments and Department Chairs: Organizational and Administrative Influences on Undergraduate Teaching. An Annotated Bibliography. On Teaching Undergraduate Sociology.
Saunders, Nancy; Franklin, Bill
This annotated bibliography was prepared to aid in an exploration of the ways in which the administrative structure of an institution influences the quality of undergraduate teaching. The specific focus is on the academic department/division and the department/division chair as the crucial administrative unit and administrator. The bibliography contains 35 references, from 1958 through 1975, to articles, dissertations, and books that focus on the organization and administration of departments/divisions in colleges and universities. The references include items for all-level institutions including general information, perceptions of the office, role and functions, selection and evaluation, and role conflicts; the academic organization and administration for all-level institutions; and the academic department/division and the department/division chair for two-year institutions.
