Report of the Evaluation of the President's Office.
Brookdale Community Coll., Lincroft, NJ. Office of Research and Development.
A survey of full-time employees at Brookdale Community College (BCC) was conducted to evaluate the college president and his staff in terms of the president's responses to the major mission and goals of BCC, the style of management of the president and his staff, and general comments. Mailed questionnaires were returned by 172 full-time staff members who represented 28% of the full-time and permanent part-time employees. Of the respondents, 47.7% were faculty, 37.2% were support staff, and 15.1% were administrators. The study concluded that the president was fulfilling his responsibilities in a highly commendable or fairly highly commendable manner based on the following: (1) on no question did the combined total of "fairly high" or "high" ratings equal less than 50%; (2) the mean percentage of respondents rating the president "high" on all questions was 40%, while the mean percentage of those rating him "fairly high" on all questions was 35%; (3) 92.4% of the respondents felt the president was an effective advocate to the outside community; and (4) the area in which the president was rated least highly was in fostering "an environment which recognizes human potential, promotes growth, and rewards initiative," as only 57.4% of the respondents rated the president's performance "high" or "fairly high." The study questionnaire is appended. (LL)
