Campus Governance - The Next Decade.
Hodgkinson, Harold L.
In our society, the majority of the population is under 25, and the value orientation of this group is replacing the old one of the Protestant Ethic. Work is deemphasized and fulfillment stressed; joy is substituted for guilt. The campus has, however, not moved an iota toward this new ethic, and much of student protest revolves around that. During the next decade, the number of adversary situations in governance will probably increase, and factional struggles for power and control of the university may ruin it. The great public institutions which enroll an ever greater number of students, have reported significant increases in student unrest, and because of their size, will continue to be vulnerable to disruption. Existing institutions must be selectively decentralized so that their governance systems can be both small and large simultaneously: decisions affecting individual lives and commitments should be made in the smallest possible units, while matters of logistics and support services should be decided in the largest context available, tapping into national networks.
