The Redistribution of Power in Higher Education: Changing Patterns of Internal Governance.
McConnell, T. R.
This paper on university governance draws heavily on documents on this subject produced by the Center for Research and Development at the University of California at Berkeley. Some other works on governance are also discussed. The paper deals with: (1) confusion and flux in governance; (2) changing personal and social values, including shifts in university priorities, civil authorities at the university, and the disaggregation of all but the university's essential functions of teaching and research; (3) internal redistribution of power, including faculty accountability to administration and trustees, reconstitution of governing boards, faculty unionism and academic senates, student role in governance, representative governance challenged, decentralized governance, and characteristics of new administrative styles; and (4) the resolution of conflict.
