The University as a Regional Corporation
Osipov, A. M.; Ivanov, S. V.
Russian Education and Society, v47 n8 p63-75 Aug 2005
A university that consists of several thousand students and personnel is a major organization. But it is rather difficult to determine its place in the typology of the organizations that are studied by sociology. Until recently, sociology in Russia did not pay due attention to the study of the organizational aspects of systems of education. In this article, the authors have pointed out the contradiction between the needs of society and the organizational structure of professional education. Their analysis of the characteristics of the university corporation is presented on the basis of materials from sociological surveys conducted at Novgorod Iaroslav the Wise State University in 1994 through 2003.
