Survey of the State-of-the-Art and Likely Future Trends of University Management in Europe: General Report.
A survey, undertaken to study the present status and likely future trends of university management in Europe, grew out of past research that showed such management was in need of change. Four objectives were identified: (1) to study recent developments in European university management; (2) to compare these developments with North American experiences; (3) to provide a basis for discussion and further national or international studies; and (4) to assist the Institutional Management in Higher Education Program in drawing up a plan of action for the future. The survey was implemented through a collection of statistical data and personal opinions on university management and an assessment of that data. The report was divided into five sections--one section for each of three areas of Europe studied, one on North America, and one more general section. A total of 52 institutions were visited. The information gathered for each institution included basic facts on the institution, the organizational system, the decision-making system, the administrative system, opinions and recent improvements in management development. Descriptive data are contained in detailed comparative tables in each area studied, and the opinions are classified by topic. This general report attempts to define the main thrust of these comments and give them a logical pattern. (Author/PJM)
