Perceptions of Tennessee FCS Faculty and Administrators in Higher Education
Stevens, Patricia M.; Crase, Dixie R.
Journal of Family and Consumer Sciences, v102 n4 p24-29 2010
In addition to general higher education challenges, family and consumer sciences (FCS) programs may confront the possibility of reorganization and/or loss of programs. In Tennessee, eight American Association of Family & Consumer Sciences (AAFCS) accredited units have faced these issues within the last five years. Faculty and administrators in these accredited units were surveyed to determine their perceptions of qualities and factors having an impact on the status of their programs. Findings from the survey suggest the critical nature of effective administrators, productive faculty, and attractive programs with healthy enrollments. The findings of the study have implications for FCS programs and the profession. (Contains 1 table and 1 resource.)
