Korkeakoulujen sisaisen hallinon kehittamiskomitean mietinto (Report of the Committee for the Development of the Inner Administration of Universities and Institutions of Higher Education).
Committee for the Development of the Inner Administration of Universities and Institutions of Higher Education, Helsinki (Finalnd).
This document is an English-language abstract (approximately 1,500 words) of a Finnish committee report that discusses the reorganization of the institutions of higher learning in regards to their internal administration. The Committee proposed legislation based on their findings; they recommended that university administrations should have greater decision-making roles; greater responsibilities for the functioning of the university should be borne by the students. In their internal affairs, universities should be autonomous. They should be governed by a council, a board of administration, department committees, and institute committees, the highest level of decision resting with the council. The chairman of the board of administration should be the university rector. Where the university has departments, their activities should be supervised by a department committee. Both faculty and students should each have equal voting privileges to elect members of the council. Further administrative details as to terms of office and qualifications are discussed in the report, which is the basis of a bill expected to become law in September 1972. (Author/GDB)
