CALIFORNIA'S COORDINATING COUNCIL FOR HIGHER EDUCATION. A STUDY OF ORGANIZATIONAL GROWTH AND CHANGE.
PALTRIDGE, JAMES GILBERT
THE COORDINATING COUNCIL FOR HIGHER EDUCATION WAS ORGANIZED IN 1960 UNDER PROVISIONS OF THE STATE'S MASTER PLAN FOR HIGHER EDUCATION. OBSERVATION, INTERVIEWS, AND ANALYSIS OF WRITTEN MATERIALS PROVIDE THE BASIS FOR THIS REPORT ON CHANGES IN THE COUNCIL'S PROCEDURES, MEMBERSHIP, AND AUTHORITY. THE ORIGINAL MEMBERSHIP INCLUDED THREE REPRESENTATIVES FROM EACH SEGMENT OF HIGHER EDUCATION (STATE UNIVERSITY, STATE COLLEGES, JUNIOR COLLEGES, AND PRIVATE INSTITUTIONS). ADDITION OF SIX LAY MEMBERS HAS INCREASED THE TOTAL MEMBERSHIP TO 18, OF WHOM NINE ARE REPRESENTATIVES OF PUBLIC HIGHER EDUCATION. AMONG ORGANIZATIONAL CHANGES HAVE BEEN 1) A MOVE TO THE STATE CAPITAL, 2) ELIMINATION OF PROXY VOTING AND RESTRICTION OF ALTERNATE MEMBERSHIPS, AND 3) CHANGES IN TERMS AND MANNER OF APPOINTMENT OF MEMBERS. THE COUNCIL'S ACTIVITIES HAVE MOVED TOWARD 1) ACTIVE, RATHER THAN PASSIVE, SURVEILLANCE OF THE DIFFERENTIATED FUNCTIONS OF THE PUBLIC HIGHER EDUCATION SEGMENTS, 2) INCREASINGLY ACTIVE RELATIONSHIP WITH THE STATE GOVERNMENT, AND 3) STATE LEVEL ADMINISTRATION OF SEVERAL FEDERAL PROGRAMS IN AID TO HIGHER EDUCATION. (CAUSES AND EFFECTS OF THESE CHANGES ARE DISCUSSED, AS ARE TOPICS SUGGESTED FOR FURTHER RESEARCH.) (WO)
