The Many-Body Problem of Quality Oversight.
Perspectives on oversight in postsecondary education and the advancement of quality education are considered. It is suggested that state licensing agencies need adequate resources and support to function in the difficult times postsecondary education is facing, state governing and coordinating boards need to dilute their planning and coordinating functions with the administrative duties involved in oversight, and colleges and universities need to forego their exemptions from state oversight in order to restore strength to licensing laws. Additionally, it is suggested that accrediting agencies need to enlist the participation of the best representatives of their best member institutions. It is also important to elevate the level of interest and participation in the regional associations to the highest policy levels of institutions. It is noted that there is no simple solution to the quality problem. (SW)
