Faculty/Management Forum: One of a Series of Guides for Planning and Operating a Corporate/College Project.
Council on Corporate/College Communications, Washington, DC.
The Faculty/Management Forum, a nontraditional approach to improving understanding and relationships between business and higher education, is described in this guide. The primary objectives of this forum center around involving faculty and business managers in joint problem-solving to help break down the barriers to mutual understanding. Participants include six faculty members, six middle managers, and a group leader. The program involves a series of three meetings held over a four to five month period. Information discussions on similarities between business and academe and major problems and concerns facing each are held. Problems of mutual interest are selected for further discussion and possible resolution. It is suggested that these forums help business managers and academicians learn about each other, and act as catalysts for future mutual projects. Costing and supply information, and a possible forum agenda are presented, as well as a list of schools and businesses that have participated in the program. (SF)
