Personnel Systems Survey Standard Report.
College and Univ. Personnel Association, Washington, DC. Management Information Systems Council.
The status of personnel systems at 370 public and private colleges in 1985 is described, based on a College and University Personnel Association survey. Responding schools were classified as two-year, four-year, universities (doctoral-granting institutions), and other (law, medical, and theological schools). For each institutional classification, information is provided on personnel modules and the type of system used to maintain the information (manual, word processor, microcomputer, or mainframe). The personnel modules include appointment history, applicant retrieval, payroll, position control, specific types of benefits, affirmative action, job evaluation data, salary surveys, skills inventory, and labor relations. For each type of school, the type of microcomputer is indicated as well as software used, applications, and year of application development. Also covered are the type of mainframe system and date acquired and vendor products and user level of satisfaction. Appended are lists of responding colleges and universities by institutional classification and state. (SW)
