A Systems Approach to University Organization.
This document conceptualizes the university as a living social system with technical, managerial, service, and institutional subsystems that have specialized goals. The document discusses models of university compliance systems--the compliance of university participants in different models such as formal, semiformal, and informal. In developing these models, the report makes observations about the organization and administration of a complex university and about the orientation of university participants. The compliance subsystems developed provide a framework for understanding and predicting the behavior of university participants and for achieving an overall view of the institution while focusing on a single area or segment.
