The academic program represents the major thrust of an institution of higher education toward the achievement of its objectives. An effective structure for academic organization is essential. Within such a structure, clarity of procedure is needed in both the development of academic policies and in the implementation of these policies. The Office of Education, in cooperation with nine privately controlled or church-related liberal arts colleges, has undertaken this study in order to provide suggestions and guidelines for institutional self-study and evaluation in the area of academic administration. The emphasis throughout has not been on content but rather on procedures relating to policy development and implementation in the academic area. While broad generalizations cannot be directly derived from these case studies, the actual procedures reported by the nine colleges can suggest thoughtful approaches which have proved feasible within the context of each college. Part I presents an overview of the process, and an analysis and summary of the field of academic administration in the nine colleges. Part II provides the individual case studies: (1) College of New Rochelle (Mother Mary Russo, O.S.U.); (2) Dillard University (Edward E. Riley, Jr.); (3) Juniata College (Morley Mays); (4) Knox College (Hermann R. Muelder); (5) Randolph-Macon Woman's College (Harriet D. Hudson); (6) Regis College (Harry E. Hoewischer, S.J.); (7) Southwestern at Memphis (Jameson M. Jones); (8) Whitman College (Paul J. Jackson); and (9) William Jewell College (Garland F. Taylor). (Contains 5 footnotes and 1 table.)
