Cresap, McCormick, and Paget Administrative Evaluations

 Collection
Identifier: 0/21/3
These studies, produced by the management consultant firm of Cresap, McCormick and Paget, Inc., were commissioned by the University administration in an effort to decrease the size of the clerical and secretarial staff of the University. Each study is discrete and includes a brief review of the history of the department under consideration, analysis of its operation in 1976/77, and an evaluation of the efficiency with which it makes use of nonprofessional staff.

A task force was formed consisting of members of the consultant's staff and University personnel, representing several units on the Evanston campus. A steering committee of Evanston campus was divided into twenty-three units, described as either an academic or administrative unit, and the task force prepared draft and final evaluations of the units. The reports for academic units were addressed to Provost Raymond W. Mack and those for the administrative units were addressed to President Robert H. Strotz. A summary evaluation was also written and addressed to President Strotz.
