Innovations in Administration Using and Being Used by Other Departments.
Becker, Samuel L.
The speech communicaton department at the University of Iowa attempts to work cooperatively with other departments, both to add strength to its own programs and to support the work of the other departments. It has avoided duplicating courses, instead permitting its students to fulfill departmental requirements by taking courses in other departments. It has also worked with other departments in developing and teaching courses jointly, developing joint majors, coordinating the scheduling of courses, making split faculty appointments, and working on artistic and research efforts. It has brought in visiting faculty members from the professional theatre and has occasionally shared their time with other departments. Finally, it has worked out faculty exchanges with other universities. (GW)
