Summary
"This comprehensive examination of the administrative environment of community colleges provides practical advice for making the institutions function more effectively. In twenty-five original chapters, experts from every area of community college administration discuss key theories and concepts, specific programs and services, and illustrative personal experiences - providing both incumbent and aspiring administrators with new ideas and proactive approaches to the task of management in community colleges." "The first part of the book examines theories of leadership and organizational culture and takes a look at the relationships between the administration and the governing board and between the college and the state. In the second part, the authors detail the operations of various administrative units: the president's office; business and finances; personnel; instruction; transfer and articulation; extramural affairs; student services; institutional research; and campus planning. The third part is devoted to basic managerial functions, with chapters covering staff recruitment and evaluation, goal design and assessment, and staff performance appraisal."--Jacket
