Literacy in the open-access college by Richard C Richardson( Book )

6 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 584 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on a 3-year case study of an open-access community college, this monograph examines the background, causes, and possible resolutions for the decline of literacy in open-access colleges. Chapter 1 presents a working definition of literacy, considers the nature of literacy in a community college setting, and raises issues concerning the impact of the decline of college standards on the student, institution, and society. Chapter 2 describes the curriculum, administration, faculty, and students of the college studied to illustrate the complex, dynamic character of the study setting. After chapter 3 provides a detailed description of teaching and learning in the classroom, chapter 4 looks at reading and writing behaviors required in class activities. Chapter 5 discusses the educational objectives of the college instructors, with a focus on the relationship of course objectives to instructor style, the emphasis on cognitive objectives in the classroom, faculty response to low student literacy skills, and the reciprocal effects of student skills and teacher objectives. In chapter 6, student motives for pursuing education are examined along with the way the institution reinforced and responded to these motives. Chapter 7 examines non-classroom influences contributing to the lack of literacy skills, including inadequate advisement, student placement problems, and special services for non-traditional students. After chapter 8 considers the indirect impact of administrative priorities on classroom literacy, chapter 9 discusses the implications of study findings for administration and instruction in open-access colleges and offers recommendations for promoting literacy.

Fostering minority access and achievement in higher education : the role of urban community colleges and universities by Richard C Richardson( Book )

8 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 570 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two overlapping nationwide studies, one funded by the Ford Foundation and the other by the U.S. Department of Education, provide information covering policies, procedures, and practices that enhance or impede the academic success of minority students in universities and community colleges. Topics include understanding the problem of minority underrepresentation in today's higher education; barriers to cooperation between universities and community colleges; the urban community college's role in educating minorities; effecting the transition to urban universities; the states' role in improving minority education; what community college students expect from higher education; how transfer students evaluate their educational experiences; improving transfer programs and practices; assessing the urban educational pipeline; and helping minorities achieve degrees (recommendations for community colleges, universities, and state boards). Appended is a seven-page questionnaire on transferring from a community college to a university. 56 references. (Sm)
Governance for the two-year college by Richard C Richardson( Book )

5 editions published in 1972 in English and Undetermined and held by 427 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book combines theory and practice to suggest a viable alternative to traditional practices of college administration and governance--the participative model which aims at developing cooperative relationships among the members of the college community as opposed to confrontation. The structural components of this model include an all-college senate, joint standing committees of the college, and an organization representing each of the three major constituencies of the college (administration, faculty, and students). The book is divided into three sections: (1) The Context, with three chapters discussing the two-year college as a system affected by federal, state, regional, and community political processes; (2) The Theory, with two chapters discussing the nature of human interaction, and the traditional bureaucratic model and participative model of an organization; (3) The Organization, with five chapters discussing the chief executive officer, administrative and business services, instructional and student personnel services, the governance process itself, and interaction between administrative and governance structures. It is suggested that through routine use of the participative governance structure a satisfactory degree of congruence between the objectives of the institution and the attitudes of its constituencies can be established. An index is provided. (Lh)

Promoting fair college outcomes : learning from the experiences of the past decade by Richard C Richardson( Book )

3 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report presents an analysis of the data developed from a survey involving case studies of 10 public colleges and universities with good records for graduating African Americans, Hispanics, or American Indians. The survey identified 36 state and 68 institutional practices associated with high, or improved, equity outcomes during the 1980s. Ten states and all of the 142 public, four-year institutions within their boundaries responded to the survey, providing information about the intensity and duration of these practices between 1980 and 1988. States and institutions also provided participation and graduation rates for the racial and ethnic groups they served. Among the study's findings concerning developing conditions between 1980-89 were the following: (1) about 20% of the predominantly Anglo institutions improved both enrollment and graduation equity outcomes between 1980 and 1988; (2) another 20% of the predominantly Anglo institutions improved enrollment equity, but lost ground on graduation equity; (3) about 30% of the institutions lost ground both in enrollment and graduation equity; (4) state efforts to improve access and undergraduate education had positive effects; (5) state policies improving transfer opportunities also had a strong positive effect; and (6) state actions were seen as primarily influencing graduation equity for African Americans and enrollment equity for Hispanics.

The interim campus; starting new community junior colleges by Richard C Richardson( Book )

2 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The American Association of Junior Colleges made this study to provide information for those wishing to develop new community junior colleges. A questionnaire was sent to the 250, two-year colleges which have begun operation since 1959. Ninety-one responded. Data was assembled by the method used by new institutions to begin their programs. Major types were--(1) evening program in shared-time facilities, (2) leased, temporary facilities previously used for non-instructional purposes, (3) leased, temporary facilities previously used for instructional purposes, (4) purchased and renovated pre-existing facilities, and (5) erection of new facilities through prefabricated or standard construction. Eight case studies are reported illustrating each type. Each case study offers a description of the interim campus and basic data relative to time lapse from appointment of college president to opening day and evening classes, faculty, students, space and costs. Communities investigating interim colleges are advised to weigh values of immediate service against problems of investing scarce funds in temporary solutions. The conclusion reached is that most communities will accept "with enthusiasm" any proposed facility solution within reasonable limits "that will place the college in service without undue delay".

Governance in institutions with faculty unions : six case studies by Kenneth P Mortimer( Book )

8 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Chronicled and analyzed are the experiences of two community colleges and four comprehensive state colleges in two different states where the faculty has chosen to unionize. The case studies are based on field visits and studies of contracts and other relevant documents. Reported on are such questions as: What conditions led the faculty to unionize?; What were the dynamics of contract negotiations and administration?; What are the general impact of collective bargaining on the various participants in college governance and on the tenor of governance relationships? An introduction summarizes the current status of collective bargaining in postsecondary education, reviews the literature on the impact of collective bargaining, and discusses the administrative traditions of community and comprehensive state colleges.
