Faculty Motivation for a Separate Board of Education and Superintendent at Glendale Community College.
Bochniarz, Robert M.
A survey was conducted among 140 Glendale Community College (California) full-time and part-time faculty to determine their attitudes and motivations regarding the formation of a separate board of education and/or a separate superintendent-president from that of the Glendale Unified School District. The respondents (53%) indicated they were in favor of a new college governance model and structure that would separate the college from the K-12 governance structure. They felt it would facilitate more direct and responsive local decision-making, improved faculty and staff morale, greater administrative and decision-making efficiency, faculty and institutional status, and greater responsiveness to the higher education needs of the community. Faculty generally responded that they would give greater support to the governance structure by attending board meetings and reading board reports, should a separate board be formed. Tabulated data are included and the questionnaire is appended. (LH)
