Celebrating the Past. Preparing for the Future.
Clagett, Craig A., Ed.
This volume presents feature articles and other information about institutional research and the North East Association for Institutional Research (NEAIR). The four feature articles are intended to provide a comprehensive guide to doing effective institutional research. These articles are: (1) "On the Nature of Institutional Research and the Knowledge and Skills It Requires" (Patrick T. Terenzini); (2) "Institutional Strategy and the I.R. Role: Perspective of a College President" (John A. Dunn, Jr.); (3) "Accountability and Assessment: Role Conflict for Institutional Researchers" (James Fredericks Volkwein); and (4) "Organizational Behavior Theories: Institutional Research Implications" (Frank A. Schmidtlein). The next article, by Christine Scarince, traces the history of NEAIR, based on the association archives and personal interviews with NEAIR leaders. Next, 2 charter members and 11 former NEAIR presidents share favorite memories and reflect on the evolution of the profession of institutional research. The volume closes with an appendix of reference material, including a collage of NEAIR logs and conference icons graphically summarizing the association's history. (DB)
