Management Development Program. A Review of the Program's Goals and Accomplishments, 1980-1984. Internal Report.
The goals and accomplishments of the Management Development Program, which was operated by the National Center for Higher Education Management System with funds from the National Institute of Education, are reported. Twenty-eight seminar/institute topics were developed from 1980 through 1983 to address planning-level issues of importance to top-level administrators in colleges and agencies/associations involved with higher education. Almost 60% of seminar participants held positions at the executive-administration level. A total of 1,685 administrators participated in 101 seminars and institutes from 1980 to 1984. Since fall 1980, 115 general audience seminars were held. Included are comments from participants about the value of seminar topics. Assessments of the locations (city and hotel) of meetings are also summarized. Examples of promotional materials used for the programs are provided, iwth information on responses to promotional materials and seminar inquiries. Information is provided on costs by promotional activity as well as program income and expenditures. Conclusions about the feasibility of the program being self-supporting include keeping overhead costs to a minimum and providing sufficient up-front capital for promotion, hotel deposits, and material preparation.
