Institutions Amplifying State Policy: How Public Colleges Award Institutional Aid
Doyle, William R.; Delaney, Jennifer A.; Naughton, Blake Alan
Change, v36 n4 p36 Jul-Aug 2004
Public colleges and universities are complex organizations that assert their institutional autonomy as they simultaneously operate in a context demanding response to public and political scrutiny. State boards and legislators, for example, enact programs, incentives, or regulations in many policy arenas designed to affect how colleges operate. One instructive topic to look at in this regard is student financial aid, because it allows us to examine the tension between institutions and states--as well as the tension between different approaches to policy.
