The Administrative Mode and Academic Corruption at China's State-Run Universities
Bin, Wang; Qichun, Chen
Chinese Education and Society, v40 n6 p37-46 Nov-Dec 2007
Institutions of higher learning, as social organizations, rely on their administrations to harmonize their resources and coordinate relations. Meanwhile, institutions of higher learning are also important links in political socialization, and state forces intervene to a certain extent in school administration and regulate their developmental objectives. However, the long-term dependence of China's state-run universities on the government and the lack of a proper orientation for academic authority have limited the universities' overall efficiency and the individuals' initiative. The universities' lagging mode of administration during the reforms of the national economy and the political system has created discrepancies between the universities' interest orientation and the interests of society and given rise to academic corruption. Reforming the traditional administrative structure is the fundamental means of eliminating its negative functions. (Contains 1 figure and 7 notes.) [This article was translated by Ted Wang.]
