Oklahoma Governance. Report and Recommendations to the Governor and Oklahoma Legislature.
Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education, Oklahoma City.
This publication reports on a state mandated review of the Oklahoma higher education system's governance and offers extensive recommendations. Following a preface and an executive summary which presents the recommendations in brief, Part I, an introduction, describes the review process which included initial recommendations from the State Regents, review by a team of national experts, on-site visits to campuses, seven public hearings, petition drives, and letters to the State Regents. Part II discusses qualifications for board members; Part III looks at the governance and structure of Oklahoma Higher Education including an overview of existing structures, history and traditions, constraints and some possible models. Finally part IV contains the 16 recommendations which are based on the principles that each institution and its community deserve the full-time attention and support of a board and that the span of responsibility for boards governing the state's two comprehensive research universities must be reduced and made more manageable. Nine attachments contain the review team's credentials, legal qualifications of board members, a governance chart, legal duties of state regents, responsibilities of governing boards and administrative boards, budgeted costs of boards, governance history, and advice on governance. Observations from on-site visits, commentary on recommendations, and a summary of testimony conclude the document. (JB)
