Summary

Issues in the resolution of departmental conflict by university chairs of educational administration departments are discussed in this paper. The need for finding more constructive ways to handle conflict is highlighted by a survey of 808 department chairs at 101 research and doctoral-granting universities, in which chairs identified intercollegial conflict as the major category of stress. The view of principled conflict management that recognizes conflict as necessary is advocated, 10 structural relationships that contribute to conflict are identified, and an analytical framework for developing a reform agenda is presented. The role of the chair as mediator is also discussed. The recommendation is made that reform be developed in a climate of constructive conflict. Five tables are included. (25 references) (LMI)
