Engineering Department Chair's Roles and Responsibilities in Taiwan.
Lee, Lung-Sheng Steven
In Taiwan's universities and colleges, the engineering department is a significant asset to higher education programs, and the department chair is expected to play multiple roles and take on many responsibilities. In order to know these roles and responsibilities better, 4 roles and 29 responsibilities were identified and constructed into a questionnaire that was mailed to all 377 engineering department chairs in Taiwan. A total of 256 chairs (67.9%) returned the questionnaire and reflected on their perceptions of the importance and loading for each responsibility. It was found that the agreement between respondents' perceptions of importance and loading was very high. Creating a shared vision by setting goals and developing plans, recruiting students, and determining faculty and staff roles were perceived as the top three important responsibilities. Creating a shared vision through setting goals and developing plans and developing and revising curricular programs were perceived as the top two heavy loading responsibilities. (Author/SLD)
