Abstract:

This dissertation deals with the organizational climate of Filipino- and Foreign-directed Philippine Association of Bible and Theological Schools (PABATS) active member Bible Colleges based on the perceptions of fifteen directors and sixty-eight teachers. This analytical survey attempted to relate organizational climate to such independent variables as type of leadership, size of students and faculty populations, and the professional profile of the respondents as of 1987-1988 using Halpin and Croft's Organizational Climate Descriptive Questionnaire (OCDQ). For this descriptive survey, the statistical tools were the mean, the percentage, the Mann Whitney U test, and the t-test. The .05 level was used to test the significance for a two-tailed test. The study found that directors generally perceived the organizational climate of their Bible Colleges as controlled while their teachers, the climate as autonomous. On the other hand, the foreign directors perceived their organizational climate as controlled, while the teachers under them perceived this climate as autonomous/controlled. It was concluded that the perceived controlled climate in Filipino-and foreign-directed Bible Colleges generally indicated a leadership where directors were production-oriented, directive but domineering, and allowed little flexibility within the organization. Everyone worked hard with little time for socialization. The directors tented to be aloof, caring little how people felt. The differences in professional profile and size of student and teacher populations between Filipino and foreign directed Bible Colleges did not seem to be influencing factors in the perceived climates of both groups of Bible Colleges. In spite of these conditions, the teachers perceived their climate as autonomous. They seemed to feel that in their school, satisfaction was high and paper work was not a burden that hindered them in their task accomplishment. Both climates manifested high satisfaction but were low in disengagement. Both climates combined, however, resulted in average hindrance, intimacy, and production emphasis.
