Black Administrators in Public Community Colleges: Self-Perceived Role and Status.
Kimmons, Willie James
This is a study of how black community college administrators perceive their roles and status. It also examines their personal and professional backgrounds. Its specific objectives were to determine what line positions black administrators occupy; to determine if the self-perceived role functions of black administrators vary at predominantly black, predominantly white, and integrated institutions; and to determine if there is a difference in the ways black administrators perceive their role functions at three levels of administration. The sample population consisted of all black chief administrators of public community/junior colleges and all black administrators at their schools. The 189 black administrators who participated in the study were categorized by three levels: (1) presidents, chancellors, or chief administrators, (2) vice-presidents, provosts, deans, associate deans, or assistant deans, and (3) department or division chairmen, program coordinators/directors, or department heads. They were from 28 public community colleges reported to have a black chief administrator, and represented 21 states. Pertinent literature is reviewed, methodology is described, findings and conclusions are presented, a bibliography is included, and the survey instrument is appended. (DC)
