43 p. 

Participants in this conference of leaders in the junior college movement and experts in the fields of leadership, organization, and research examined basic concepts from which to develop technIQues for everyday management of school problems. Working papers were given on (1) leadership, (2) organization, and (3) institutional research. The presentations on leadership covered (1) source materials, (2) innate and developed qualities of leadership, (3) the creation and exhibition of leadership behavior by the group situation, by the group structure, and by its member personalities, (4) the classification of leaders and leadership concepts as symbolic, decision-making, advisory, or initiative, (5) concepts of leadership function, (6) the growth of the nonteaching bureaucracy and its effects on faculty participation in university policy making, and (7) the need for faculty to accept some administrative duties along with teaching and research. The address on organization explored the complex interaction of power, change, decision-making, and communication networks. The papers on research covered its significance in industrial program planning and development (as exemplified at the boeing company), and in college administration, particularly as applied to student attitudes, instructional quality, and the creation of a fertile climate of research within the organization.
