Academic Stratification and Functional Theory.
Kamens, David H.; Sarup, Gian
Research in Higher Education, v12 n2 p121-38 1980
A set of propositions on organizational stratification drawn from functional theory is examined. Data are used from 38 departments of a large university as well as from individual faculty survey responses. It is suggested that organizational features act as symbolic devices which inform others that a given organization is a competent member of its set. (Author/LC)
