The Governance of Postsecondary Education in New York State.
Hollander, T. Edward
Despite the large size and scope of postsecondary education in New York and the resulting complexities that exist, there is a strong commitment to pluralistic education. A basic premise in the governance of postsecondary education in New York is that statewide planning and coordination must be directed so that institutions, in making their separate decisions, can chart their paths with relationship to what other institutions regionally and across the state are planning, while assuring that state and federal resources are used to achieve the goals established for the state as a whole. Part 1 of the document discusses: alternatives to the present system of governance, background on the University of the State of New York, New York State's performance in postsecondary education, the coordination of postsecondary education with other educational levels, and the relationship of regents to the state executive and legislature. Part 2 discusses changes in planning functions and procedures, citing weaknesses of statewide planning in the past as: (1) the lack of detail of institutional plans; (2) the lack of communication among public and private institutions as they proceed in the planning process, and (3) the lack of formal arrangements for articulating the budget with the planning process. Part 3 discusses governance of student aid and the Higher Education Service Corporation. Part 4 notes other governance issues that deserve some attention. (Author/KE)
