Conflict in higher education : state government coordination versus institutional independence by John D Millett( Book )

10 editions published between 1983 and 1984 in English and Undetermined and held by 579 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The relationship between state governments and higher education institutions is analyzed, based on findings of research conducted in 25 states. After considering the multiple higher education institutions and their post-World War ii development in the various states, the book reviews major studies concerned with state government and college relations. Higher education concerns of state governments that constitute the agenda in the 1980s are considered, and three major types of administrative organization at the state government level are defined: statewide governing board, state coordinating board, and state advisory board. Attention is also directed to the two primary arrangements for full-time professional leadership to state higher education boards. Two basic questions about public higher education that state governments must resolve are also addressed: the differentiation of mission among multiple institutions of higher education and the allocation of available resources among public institutions and public programs. In addition, information is provided about the financing of college and key issues concerning external constraints on academic freedom. Finally, institutional autonomy in relation to state governments is discussed, along with speculation about future relationships. (Sw)

Perspectives on management, governance, and leadership of the university are presented. The following organizational characteristics are discussed: sense of purpose, work specialization, work technology, pattern of cooperation, pattern of management, pattern of governance, and pattern of leadership. The following purposes of American colleges and universities are examined: instruction, research, creative activity, public service, educational justice, and constructive criticism (the self-renewal of social institutions). Types of programs by which the purposes of higher education are realized are outlined, as are structural units of higher education. Statements of mission of a college or university influence organizational structure, program objectives, and program performance. Essentials of mission with regard to instruction, research, public service, orientation, access, enrollment size and characteristics, quality, and resources are discussed. The management structure of the university is examined in terms of the various administrative positions and their respective responsibilities. The following four basic components of the management process are analyzed: work planning, work performance, work resources, and work evaluation. University governance is considered in relation to the roles of the president, faculty members, students, other staff members, alumni, and the university council. Dimensions of the role of presidential leadership in a university, problems of presidential leadership, and collective leadership are considered. (Sw)
Explorations in undergraduate education: why political science? Report of a study by John D Millett( Book )

7 editions published between 1973 and 1975 in English and held by 260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To learn how a discipline in higher education perceives its instructional role in undergraduate study, six case studies of the process of undergraduate education in political science were prepared and analyzed. An advisory panel was formed to develop the study procedure, to select the institutions studied, and to choose the authors. The case studies drew from an outline of 50 questions. Data was obtained from a variety of institutions by authors who were representative of the discipline. The analysis of the case studies is divided into six sections: the knowledge of political science; the objectives of undergraduate education in political science; students, faculty and institutions; the curriculum for undergraduate education in political science; instructional practices and resources; and a conclusion.
