Academic Management and Administration System Reform in Higher Education Institutions
Xianming, Xiang
Frontiers of Education in China, v1 n1 p70-78 Jan 2006
Reforms in colleges and universities should promote the humanistic character of higher education--rather than simply serve for pure economic production--but also observe the sacred mission of transmitting and creating culture and knowledge, with these two possessing momentous differences. These then demand rationality in academic management to guard against declination toward dehumanization or bureaucracy. Thus, the relationship between academic power and administrative power must be harmonized, and a reasonable equilibrium must be guaranteed. An academic management idea of power in learning is particularly emphasized to overcome the false polarity of managerism, straightforwardly reducing complicated academic operations to a kind of economic prosecution, hence truly promoting the function of a higher education system.
