Summary

An objective evaluation of multicampus and consolidated university systems is presented as a composite of a literature study, a statistical survey, and results from visits to central offices and campuses. Responses from 255 executives of selected institutions were statistically analyzed regarding administrators' opinions on how their systems or campuses actually functioned and what they considered the desired degree of centralization for each of 24 areas of administration specified on the questionnaire. This report portrays the functional areas to be served by the administrative structure, whether a specific duty is executed by a single officer or shared by two or more. Focus is on the most successful structural elements of multicampus administration, with suggestions offered for effective restructuring of multicampus systems. Evidence suggests that many universities existing as multicampus systems in 1970 will move to consolidating systems of one board and one executive for the entire state. However, many independent institutions will be clustered into multicampus systems so that the net effect will be an increase in both types of systems. (LBH)
