A Qualitative Exploration of the Demands and Constraints of Department Heads

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This qualitative study examined the demands and constraints placed on department heads in higher education using Stewart’s (1997) Theory. Data included interviews of deans, faculty, and department heads, observations of department heads, and website study. Three overarching categories of demands and constraints emerged: Faculty/student issues, financial/resource issues, and administrative/leadership issues. An important finding was the absence of formal materials provided to department heads with regard to procedures and training.
