The Assessment of Need for Administrative Development on a University Campus: A Report.
Dieterich, Dan
Professional development needs of administrators at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point (UWSP) were assessed. A survey was administered to determine topics that administrators needed to know, how knowledgeable they were on these topics, and topics they wanted to learn more about to improve their administrative performance. Of 134 administrators, 103 rated 89 topics and identified the college or division in which they worked. The respondents felt they would benefit from administrative development in eight areas: leadership skills, listening, reading quickly and with good comprehension, writing effectively, delegating effectively, interpersonal skills, administrative roles, and stress management. This information was derived by caculating need scores, knowledge scores, and importance scores. The 23 most important topics and the 23 topics of greatest need are listed in rank order. Mean importance, knowledge, and need scores are indicated for specific activities in the following areas: writing, speaking, listening, reading, interpersonal skills, self-development, meetings management, education techniques, time management, stress management, budgeting, leadership, motivation, career counseling, delegation, staffing, productivity, conflict counseling, team building, decision-making/problem-solving, objectives, and administrative role. The questionnaire is appended. (SW)
