Governance for the Two-Year College.
Richardson, Richard C., Jr.; And Others
This book combines theory and practice to suggest a viable alternative to traditional practices of college administration and governance--the participative model which aims at developing cooperative relationships among the members of the college community as opposed to confrontation. The structural components of this model include an all-college senate, joint standing committees of the college, and an organization representing each of the three major constituencies of the college (administration, faculty, and students). The book is divided into three sections: (1) The Context, with three chapters discussing the two-year college as a system affected by federal, state, regional, and community political processes; (2) The Theory, with two chapters discussing the nature of human interaction, and the traditional bureaucratic model and participative model of an organization; (3) The Organization, with five chapters discussing the chief executive officer, administrative and business services, instructional and student personnel services, the governance process itself, and interaction between administrative and governance structures. It is suggested that through routine use of the participative governance structure a satisfactory degree of congruence between the objectives of the institution and the attitudes of its constituencies can be established. An index is provided. (LH)
