The number of private institutions of higher education grew rapidly in Indonesia after 1961. No research studies can be found that ascertain the role expectations of presidents of private institution of higher education in West Java. This study attempted (1) to determine the role expectations of presidents as perceived by presidents, board members, and faculty members of private institutions of higher education in West Java, and (2) to discover any significant differences in the perceptions of the roles of presidents among and between presidents, board members, and faculty members and among and between universities, sekolah tinggi, and academies.
Two questionnaires--a primary questionnaire of ninety-three items and a subsidiary questionnaire of sixteen questions--were designed in the Indonesian language to assess the perceptions of respondents. The primary questionnaire was sent to three groups of respondents representing three types of institutions. The subsidiary questionnaire was sent only to presidents of institutions which participated. Data were obtained from 46 presidents, 96 board members. Ten null hypotheses were tested using chi-square analysis and Kendall's W.
Based on responses from forty-six participating institutions, the following observations were drawn: (1) In general, each of the ninety-three roles were positively perceived by the three groups and by the three types of institutions, to be the roles of presidents. (2) Chi-square analysis indicated various numbers of items as significantly different among and between the three groups, as well as among and between types of institutions. However, these differences were all small.
All ninety-three roles were accepted by presidents, board members, and faculty members, and by universities, sekolah tinggi, and academies to be the roles of presidents. Differences, or conflicts, among and between perceptions of respondents were small and would not deteriorate cooperation among and between the groups of respondents regarding the undertaking of the roles of presidents. Presidents' perceptions of their roles seemed to be closer to their boards than to their faculties.
