Resurgence of Administrative Evaluations and Unit Climate Surveys To Improve and Strengthen Institutional Leadership. AIR 2002 Forum Paper.
Cox, Kelline S.; Downey, Ronald G.
In today's higher education arena, a strong emphasis has been placed on institutional accountability and utilization of resources. Considering that individual accountability is an important aspect of institutional leadership and management, higher education has directed little effort to administrative evaluations and climate surveys. The purpose, procedures, and methods for evaluating the performance of administrators or their unit are either in the development stage or inconsistently administered with limited reporting of results or steps for improvement. The success of administrative evaluation efforts depends on identifying the purpose, developing appropriate tools, and providing feedback for improvements. (Contains 11 references.) (Author/SLD)
