dc.description.abstract The purpose of the study was to determine whether the State supported Universities in Indiana adjust the number of selected support positions as enrollments vary. To facilitate reporting the data the study was written in five chapters. Chapter I included an overview that delineated the purpose for the study and organization for subsequent chapters.Chapter II presented a review of related research and literature directly pertaining to the study. No literature or research has been found that quantitatively describes what a minimum selected support staff should be, or what existing ratios are. Evidence exists within the literature and research to support the concept that the human resources approach to the personnel function is impacting higher education through the larger society. Evidence exists to support the notion that unions will continue to play a vital role in assuring that support services within higher education will receive a larger percentage of administrative attention within the next decade.Chapter III contained an explanation of the methods and procedures employed to derive the necessary data. The chapter contained procedures for selecting the population, methods used in the collection of data and methods used for analysis of data.Chapter IV contained the data collected from the respective Directors of Personnel Services of the selected institutions and enrollment data collected from the National Center For Educational Statistics. The data was presented in narrative form with the tables and figures utilized to report the raw data.Chapter V provided a summary of the study, findings, conclusions, and recommendations. The findings support the following selected conclusions:1. There has been a generally positive relationship among enrollments and the number of selected support staff positions during the time span stipulated within the study.2. During the time span stipulated within the study, enrollments at all universities have increased at a greater rate than selected support staff positions, although specific yearly negative relationships did occur.3. There appears to have been no conscious effort on the part of personnel directors at any institution studied to either establish appropriate support staff to student ratios or to maintain any such ratio. en_US
