Abstract: An analysis of perceived leadership practices of mass communications and journalism department chairs at 33 southeastern colleges and universities found significant differences between chairs in public and private institutions, chairs appointed to the position and those hired through a competitive process, and chairs with varying degrees of experience. The chairs responded to surveys that addressed Kouzes and Posner’s 5 effective leadership practices. The most prevalent leadership practice was Enabling Others to Act.

Abstract: The constitution of an Information Technology (IT) department and the forming of identity among IT employees are often a challenging task in large contemporary organizations. The interest in studying the alignment of IT in organizations has therefore increased though little focus has been given to the role of communication in the process (Lankhorst, 2009). This study emanates from the contention that organizing occurs in conversation (Weick, 1979). A communication-centered approach contributes to a more comprehensive understanding of the forming of an IT department. Using interviews and a focus group, this study explores how communication serves to form the IT department as a community of practice. The analysis rests on McPhee and Zaug’s (2000) four-flows framework. The results from our case study indicate that the interdependence of the four communications processes is indispensible in order to form the IT employees’ identity to belong to one community of practice.

Abstract: Since Bollens (1957) first identified special districts as a “dark continent” in political science, the number of non-school special districts in the United States has grown substantially. During the past 50 years, however, political science objections to the fragmentation of metropolitan government have remained largely theoretical.
This study examines one form of non-school special districts-- park districts-- and evaluates their efficiency and effectiveness. The study evaluates park district services compared to similar services provided by consolidated general-purpose municipal governments.
Two competing hypotheses are identified. The first states that parks and recreation departments provide higher levels of efficiency in delivering services than park districts. The second states that park districts provide higher service levels than municipal parks and recreation departments.
Midwestern states were selected for the study because they have the largest number of non-school special districts in the United States and comparable numbers of parks and recreation departments within municipalities and county governments.
Service levels, autonomy, demographic, and administrator profile data for park districts and parks and recreation departments were collected by surveying an equal number of randomly selected park district administrators and randomly selected parks and recreation department administrators in Midwestern states.
Data was analyzed using comparative means testing, bivariate and multivariate linear regression to test the relationships between service levels, and efficiency levels, as identified in the literature. In addition, these quantitative techniques were used to test competing hypotheses identified in other studies, suggesting that staffing and professional training levels are explanations for service and budgetary levels.
The aggregate results of this study show that structure of government is not an important determinant of total recreation program levels. The study also demonstrates that structure of government is not an important determinant of levels of efficiency.
