The Erosion of University Autonomy in Manitoba
Smith, Dan
Canadian Journal of Educational Administration and Policy, v154 p1-33 Mar 2014
Examining legislative change between 1997 and 2013, and analyzing the governance of Manitoba's post-secondary system using military concepts of strategy, operations, and tactics, this article argues that there has been a trend since 2006 of a general loss of university autonomy in the province. The article finds that changes in public policy in Manitoba's post-secondary system, and how that policy is implemented, have led to a progressive movement towards greater government intrusion in what heretofore have been internal matters at the province's universities.
