Second Annual Inservice Education Program (IEP) Invitational Seminar for Members of Statewide Coordinating and Governing Boards: Notes (Afton, Oklahoma, August 1980).
Notes on a 1980 seminar for members of statewide coordinating and governing boards are presented as part of an inservice education program. Speakers and participants spoke on such topics as the relations among universities and governments in a time of increasing accountability, institutional reactions under conditions of fiscal stress, and possibilities of enhancement of relationships among statewide boards and their constituents. The keynote speech by Lord Asa Briggs indicated the international scope of the dilemmas facing those governing and administering higher education during a time of pressure for public accountability created by lowering enrollments and funding restraints. Lyman A. Glenny described his study of response to fiscal stress by 10 California institutions. He documented uneven enrollment trends and suggested that public institutions that are expanding are not having their growth adequately funded. Richard Ingram addressed the role of trustees and regents in the institutional response to stress and described a five-year planning document at Plattsburg State University of New York. Robert Lewis considered the relationship between trustees and college executives, and Robert Berdahl argued that "deparochialization" of academic disciplines must be one key goal for any statewide board. E. T. Dunlap traced the progress of the IEP with W. K. Kellogg and Frost Foundations funding and solicited affirmation of the continuation of similar programs. A seminar schedule, a list of participants, and memorable quotations from the seminar are included. (SW)
