A Rationale for Organization and its Application to Existing and Proposed Structures for Advanced Education in Alberta. Alternative Futures. Master Planning Monograph 5.
Bosetti, R. A.
This paper was prepared in response to a need for a rational basis upon which to analyse and appraise existing and proposed organizational structures for advanced education in Alberta, Canada. The Rationale for Organization developed in Chapter 1 is based on a humanistic philosophy that views man as free and capable of infinite perfectability through experience and education. Chapter 2 is devoted to applications of the Rationale for Organization to existing and proposed organizational structures for advanced education. Chapter 3 presents and analyzes 6 alternative structures for organization. The final chapter presents a recommended alternative for coordination and governance of the advanced education system. The recommended model includes a system coordinating structure consisting of an educational policies commission having an executive arm in the form of a department of advanced education. Institutional governance is provided through boards of governors for each institution. The model also provides for a judiciary function to be performed by both the policy commission and by an external agency, and for an advisory function to be performed by the professional staff of the department and by an Academic Advisory Committee.
