Ethical Tensions and Academic Leaders
Ehrich, Lisa Catherine; Kimber, Megan; Cranston, Neil; Starr, Karen
Higher Education Review, v43 n3 p50-69 Sum 2011
Internationally universities have been characterised by shrinking government funding, fierce competition for student enrolments, and greater pressures to become commercially viable. It is against this complex background that academic leaders have been required to confront and resolve a multitude of conflicting interests as they seek to balance a variety of values in their decision-making processes. In this article we put forward a model of ethical decision-making developed from empirical research and literature. To test the efficacy of the model, a case scenario is posed. The article concludes by raising a number of implications for academic leaders regarding ongoing professional learning needed in this area. (Contains 1 figure.)
