Association of Governing Boards of Universities and Colleges
This paper summarizes the proceedings of the 1999 Symposium on Research and Scholarship on Higher Education Governance, Trusteeship, and the Academic Presidency sponsored by the Association of Governing Boards of Universities and Colleges and the Curry School of Education at the University of Virginia. The symposium addressed the state of research into higher education governance. A group of 23 notable higher education leaders and researchers participated. Plenary session 1 addressed "Higher Education's Future in the Corporatized Economy." Plenary session 2 discussed "New Approaches to Research on Leadership and Governance." Plenary session 3 was "Academic Governance: New Light on Old Issues." A concluding session, "Taking Stock," discussed what disciplinary approaches participants would encourage to further research on the issue and what consequential projects and influential literature might illuminate these issues. Emerging themes and new directions included: interdisciplinary approaches; corporatization or commercialization; legitimacy and moral authority; changing institutional structures and dynamics; the role of the president; assessment and measurement; institutional responsiveness; effective public boards; new politics of higher education governance; and incentives and rewards.
