Can Collective Bargaining Help Institutions during a Period of Constrained Resources?
Hollander, T. Edward
Education and the Professions Newsletter, v20 n3 p1-6 Sep-Oct 1992
This article by T. Edward Hollander, offers an overview of the current condition of state funding for higher education, noting that unlike secondary and elementary education, higher education may appear to be a discretionary appropriation which state leaders can expand or reduce depending on the state's fiscal circumstances. Suggesting that college budgets will be seriously constrained in the near future and for the remainder of the century, the paper looks at measures that colleges can take to become more effective and efficient. The paper discusses various steps that colleges can take and argues that strong collective bargaining can be beneficial as it demands strong institutional leadership and effective institutional management.
