The University Visitor and University Governance.
Price, David M.; Whalley, Peregrine W. F.
Journal of Higher Education Policy and Management, v18 n1 p45-57 May 1996
The role of the University Visitor, whose traditional function is to mediate conflict within a university and contribute to its governance, is examined in the context of Australian higher education. Medieval English ecclesiastical origins of the office are described, and calls for abolition are examined. It is argued that the office should be preserved, but also clarified and redefined.
