Birth of a Coordinating Agency: The Establishment of the Ohio Board of Regents.
Olivas, Michael A.
The Ohio Board of Regents was established as a mechanism to coordinate the growth of higher education institutions in Ohio during the period when enrollments in K-12 school systems suggested large increases in college attendance. During the 1960s 23 states took similar actions to centralize state authority to coordinate or govern higher education. Ohio legislators were influenced by internal political circumstances as well as by external (federal and regional) considerations; these included interinstitutional rivalries, a gubernatorial election campaign, consultants' recommendations, and federal educational program directions. The agenda-building model makes clearer the diverse activities spread over 10 years. (Author)
