The University of California, Berkeley, and the Government. An Institutional Self Study.
Bowker, Albert H.; Morgan, Patrick M.
The relationship between the University of California at Berkeley and the government is examined. Interviews with over 150 people on campus, ranging from leading administrators to a sample of faculty researchers to section heads in departments such as Personnel and Purchasing, as well as written reports by numerous offices supplied the data of this report. Data include: copies of applicable laws and regulations; manuals on laws and regulations produced by government and the university; relevant files on correspondence, plans, and documents; and various campus reports. Information is focused on: () direct cost of federal regulations; (2) direct burdens of federal regulations; (3) indirect or secondary effects of regulations; (4) constraints on research or services; and (5) benefits of regulation. Chapters examine foreigners, research, disadvantaged groups, financial aid, privacy and campus records, and environmental and safety regulations. Tables provide statistical data on such areas as federal expenditures, research awards, and campus costs. It is suggested that although federal government's involvement is beneficial in many ways, a distance should be kept between education and government to protect against over-regulation. Higher education is urged to lobby more for its causes, keep campuses in compliance with federal law, and be consistent in goals and values in order to put its relationhip with the government in proper perspective.
