Hickson, Mark, III
JACA: Journal of the Association for Communication Administration, v29 n3 p273-85 Sep 2000
Offers an empirically derived model (based on observations of administrative behavior at two institutions of higher education) describing relationships among central administrators, chairs, and faculty. Discusses change agents, the do-it-yourself approach, the rhetoric of change, the faculty retreat, hiring new and more administrators, creating additional bureaucracy, co-opting publications, statistical "gobbledygook," and the acting dean.
