Patterns of Private-Public Relatedness: Five Institutional Histories and an Analysis.
McKeefery, William; And Others
Perspectives on shifts in private-public relatedness experienced by five higher education institutions are presented. The five histories illustrate a variety of individual differences in private-public relatedness and represent a cross-section of 80 institutions that have encountered important adjustments. In each of the following institutions, the shift was made toward a more balanced private-public relationship: Cornell University as a private university with four public land grant colleges; Temple University as a state related university that was once a religious college; University of Delaware as a privately administered, state assisted, land grant, sea grant university; New College of Sarasota, Florida, as a former private liberal arts college now continuing as part of a public university; and Rio Grande College as a private four-year college in Ohio's river valley that sponsored a public community college on its campus. An introduction and analysis of the five models is presented by William McKeefery. Each of the institutions is discussed by the following officials: Cornell (Constance Cook); Temple (David V. Randall); Delaware (G. Arno Loessner); New College (Eugene Lewis); and Rio Grande (Herman Koby). Attention is directed to: why a public relationship developed, how the private-public accommodation was achieved; what the characteristics of the relationship achieved were; and what the consequences of the altered relationship were on its educational program, financial status, and on nearby institutions. Information on additional institutions and implications of the changes in private-public relatedness are examined. (SW)
