On Chairing the Educational Administration Program.
Willower, Donald J.
This paper is a broad-based discussion of the administration of university educational administration programs from the perspective of a chairperson. The paper is divided into three parts. The first deals with the faculty, discussing considerations in the selection, socialization, and management of educational administration faculty. The second part discusses the students as organizational participants, focusing on approaches to developing rapport between the faculty and students and among the students themselves, and maintaining input from students after they have graduated. The third section considers the environment, both internal to the organization (the rest of the university) and external to it. Throughout, it is assumed that the main purposes of an educational administration program are to contribute to inquiry on educational administration and to prepare and work with individuals who can employ the processes and results of inquiry to improve schools.
