By John P. Minahan

In the following paper, which was presented at the SCUP11 Conference in July, 1976, the author attempts to delineate two models for administrative decision making in academe, which were derived from an analysis of the logical properties thought to be inherent in well-formed or reasoned decisions. Both models were designed to avoid the difficulties encountered when administrators view decision making merely as an "art" in which decisions are made on the basis of "occurrent," or private, non-falsifiable judgements. John P. Minahan is Associate Professor of Philosophy and Assistant Vice President for Academic Affairs at the State University College at Buffalo.
