Program on Administration in Higher Education.
The importance of developing a university level program on administration in higher education in Latin America is discussed. The objective of such a program would provide training to faculty and higher level education and administrative staff in matters related to administration. The program would offer the necessary guidelines in dealing with personnel problems and institutional needs, and could also lead to a graduate degree. The creation of such a program is proposed as part of the academic activities of any university in Latin America. Program objectives include: to create a unified body to offer technical assistance to national institutions of higher education at all levels; examine the material relative to institutional administration; and establish contact with other higher education institutions. Suggested program activities include: staff training and development programs; research and studies on current administration, planning, and organizing processes; and technical assistance in the administration and management of institutions of higher education to colleges, universities, and other professional and technical institutes. A summary of some of the courses outlined for the program is provided. Financial resources and support ideas are presented. Contains 14 references. (SM)
