Accountability and Autonomy.
McConnell, T. R.
In the last few years government agencies have expanded their controls over higher education and thus diminished the autonomy of public insitutions. Some of the recent instances of government intervention were the responses of legislators and government officials to student and faculty behavior they considered irresponsible and disruptive. In other cases, financial stringency and mounting costs have provoked greater controls, indicative of long-range trends in government and public administration. In any event, educational institutions have found themselves accountable in manifold ways to the agencies of state government. As private colleges and universities secure state support, they too will find themselves publicly accountable. And as federal support of higher education grows, both public and private institutions will find themselves increasingly accountable to the federal departments that administer the funds as well as to the state agencies through which they are channeled.
