Governance in the Twenty-First-Century University: Approaches to Effective Leadership and Strategic Management. ASHE-ERIC Higher Education Report. Jossey-Bass Higher and Adult Education Series.
Gayle, Dennis John; Tewarie, Bhoendradatt; White, A. Quinton, Jr.
This volume explores approaches to effective leadership and strategic management in the 21st century university by considering the perceptions and attitudes of university leaders toward the institutional structures and organizational cultures from which universities are led and managed. The differences between treating universities as businesses and managing them in a business-like way are discussed. Also considered are the kinds of leadership that will best address challenges and how to gain consensus among constituents that change is needed. From historical background to modern e-learning techniques, the volume looks at governance to find systems that are effectively structured to balance the needs of students, educators, administrators, trustees, and legislators. The chapters are: (1) "Trends in University Governance Structures"; (2) "Structural and Cultural Elements of Governance"; (3) "Competing Perspectives and Expectations"; (4) "Governance and Teaching and Learning"; (5) "Governance, Information Technology, and Distance Education"; (6) "Resource Allocation and Governance"; and (7) "A Revised Model of Governance Structure in the Twenty-First Century University." Three appendixes contain information about enrollments, a survey of university governance, and a discussion of organizational culture and governance. (Contains 232 references.) (SLD)
