Roles and Structures for Participation in Higher Education Governance: A Rationale.
Ikenberry, Stanley O.
It is obvious that the roles for participation of faculty, students and administrators in campus governance are inadequately defined and that the organizational structure through which these roles might be performed is deficient. This paper considers the rationale for such faculty and student organizations and examines some issues that have to be confronted in an attempt to change the faculty-student-administration organizational structure. Some of the problems inherent in the institution of higher education as an organization are: the absence of a widely shared understanding about the meaning and purpose of the institution, the weakening of the forces of tradition, and the diffusion of goals and values of the participants. Issues that must be confronted in the organization debate are: the questions of jurisdiction, the problem of autonomy of authority versus shared influence, and the question of centralization versus decentralization.
