Governance and Coordination of California Higher Education.
Brossman, Sidney W.
The present method of governance of California's public higher education, including the Coordinating Council for Higher Education, has worked well for coordination of the three segments of public higher education--the University of California, the California State University and Colleges, and the 96 California Community Colleges. A combination of local boards, statewide boards, and a coordinating board provides an effective system of governance. The processes and mechanisms for college governance should be established at the campus level, with appropriate review at the system level, and corrective measures, where necessary, at the legislative level. Local boards and child executive officers of each campus should be given responsibility--and strict accountability--for governance of their campuses. At the same time, its is the responsibility of the statewide board to insure that due process is observed on each campus, and that faculty, students and other members of the campus community are consulted and have some appropriate advisement role in the decision-making process.
