Consortia: A Challenge to Institutional Autonomy.
Wood, Herbert H.
The kinds of impact a consortium might have on the operations of its member institutions are presented following an overview of the consortium's challenge to institutional autonomy. Ten attitudinal forms of consortium impact challenging autonomy include: (1) the rest are going ahead so do it anyway, (2) infiltration and multiple loyalities of faculty and staff, (3) if it becomes funded, then participate, (4) modification of personal adjustments required of individuals in their role expectations, (5) a family member has special obligations, (6) don't talk about us when we are absent, (7) we want to be the way we are now, (8) it is expensive to participate but we can't afford to pullout, (9) more than one consortium wants us, and (10) united we stand, divided we fall.
