Summary

To gather information about the administrative relationship between the district office and the various campuses of a multi-institution junior college district, administrative officers in 21 districts were studied. In addition, opinions of 45 district chief executives and 75 institutional chief administrators representing 17 states were sought to determine the advantages and disadvantages of centralized and autonomous administrative structures. It was concluded that a system of shared authority, striking a balance between autonomy and centralization, was both prevalent and desirable. The multi-institution district and the variety of forces that have shaped its administrative structure are reviewed in detail, including the influences of the community, the secondary school, the university (or multiuniversity), and business and industry. Case studies of five multi-institution districts provide a representative sample of organizational patterns and, in view of the findings of the whole study, guidelines common to the organization and development of any multi-institutional district are summarized in terms of appropriate functions of the central office and of individual campuses.
