Abstract or Summary
  • Purpose of the Study The purpose of this study was to determine and analyze criteria and procedures used in the selection of occupational advisory committee members in Oregon community colleges. The existence of a common core of criteria and procedures for selecting occupational advisory committee members was investigated. Further, the relationship between an individual's level in the organization and his number of years of experience at selecting advisory committee members were related to this core. On-going committee member replacement practices were compared to practices followed in selecting a member for an initial committee, and information provided in the literature was compared to selection criteria and procedures actually being used. Finally, the implications of selecting an advisory committee prior to employment of an instructor were considered. Procedures The data for this study were gathered by administering a questionnaire-interview form to 36 persons. Participants in the study included one dean of occupational education, one department chairman who was primarily concerned with a trade and industrial program, and one instructor teaching in a trade and industrial program from each of Oregon's 12 community colleges. Objective data were analyzed for significant differences by Student's t-test and rank order correlation techniques. Conclusions The following conclusions were drawn from the data obtained in this study: 1. There was no difference in the criteria used by all participants combined and those used by each respondent group in selecting occupational advisory committee members. 2. There was no difference in the procedures used by all participants combined and those used by instructors or department chairmen in selecting occupational advisory committee members. Deans were found to use different procedures from those used by all participants combined. 3. There was no difference in criteria used by instructors as compared to department chairmen or by department chairmen as compared to deans. Instructors were found to use different criteria for committee member selection from those used by deans. 4. There was no difference in procedures used by instructors as compared to procedures used by department chairmen. Instructors and department chairmen were both found to use different procedures from those used by deans. 5. There was no difference in the criteria used by those having five and less years of experience at selecting occupational advisory committee members and those having six and more years of experience. 6. Those having five and less years of experience at selecting occupational advisory committee members were found to use different procedures from those having six and more years of experience. 7. There was no difference in criteria used by instructors or deans in selecting initial committee members as compared to selecting replacement members for an on-going committee. Department chairmen were found to use different criteria in selecting initial committee members as compared to selecting replacement members for an on-going committee. 8. There was no difference in procedures used for the selection of initial occupational advisory committee members as opposed to the selection of replacement members for the ongoing committee. 9. There was no difference between those criteria suggested in the literature and those criteria actually used in selecting occupational advisory committee members. 10. There was no difference between those procedures suggested in the literature and those procedures actually used in selecting occupational advisory committee members. 11. It was found to be advantageous to select an occupational advisory committee prior to employment of an instructor for the occupational area.
