Academic Autonomy for Adult Degree Programs: Independence with Integration
Curry, Judson
New Directions for Higher Education, n159 p37-44 Aut 2012
North Park University's adult program has moved steadily from a centralized governance structure toward a more distributed structure in many ways. The School of Adult Learning hires its own faculty, some of whom are full time in the adult program. The school also has autonomy over academic policy. Ultimately, this academic autonomy has fostered more effective and meaningful integration of the School of Adult Learning into the wider institution of North Park University.
