Consultants' Report of Political Science Programs in the State University System of Florida.
Lineberry, Robert L.
A group of external consultants conducted a review of the political science programs at the institutions within the state university system of Florida and made recommendations based on their findings. Their research focused on three questions: (1) How well does the department integrate itself into the university's mission? (2) How well does the department's research mission both reflect and lead research within the discipline? (3) How effective is the department's teaching program, including the graduate and undergraduate curriculum, the student advising procedures, student morale, student success rate, and cooperation with other teaching activities of the university? Systemwide overviews are provided in the areas of graduate education, undergraduate education, faculties, facilities, and support services. Recommendations are made concerning staffing, departmental organization, curriculum, faculty development, and mission. An examination of individual schools is also presented with specific recommendations for each. Six appendices contain information on the consultants and coordinators, tables detailing degrees offered and degree productivity, and site visit schedules. (JB)
