Governance and Emerging Values in Higher Education.
Mortimer, Kenneth P.; And Others
This document contains 3 articles. The first: "Governance in Higher Education: Conflict in the Seventies," by Kenneth P. Mortimer, reviews the realignments of authority now underway, including (1) the challenges to traditional authority relationships from external sources, such as governmental intervention, judicial rulings, statewide coordination and planning, and multicampus systems; (2) the challenges from internal sources, such as the demand for greater control by governing boards, the desire for shared authority on the part of the faculty, and the increase in collective negotiations; and (3) the trouble with senates as mechanisms for the implementation of shared authority. The second article "Changing Governance Patterns and the Faculty," by Stanley O. Ikenberry, surveys certain trends in governance, including the demise of the academic mystique, the decline in autonomy, increased standardization of governance procedures and codes, conflict recognition and management, decentralization, and the growing challenge to academic professionalism, and the implications of these for the faculty. In the third article: "Governance and Institutional Values: What is at Stake?" Lester Anderson discusses whether the type of governance makes a difference to the definitions and goals of higher education. (AF)
