University Decision Structures. Technical Report.
Jensen, Arne; And Others
Viewpoints on the university organization are represented which arose from study of the situation in the University of Denmark and the University of Copenhagen in particular. The question addressed is whether it is possible, by way of a simple set of rules to create a system of governance for higher education that will satisfy the demands of society. Emphasis is on building a close democracy with decentralized planning and coupled relations between all parts of the university and society. The process of designing alternative structures for the University of Copenhagen is clarified, as are the possible uses and problems to be considered with professional management in a university setting. Comparison with the University of California is made. Differences in the structure of the organizations and in particular the process of decision making in the budget planning are shown to result in differences in the research activity around the management and administration of the two institutions. Ideal university organization and working conditions are considered. (LBH)
