Mergers in higher education lessons from theory and experience by Julia Antonia Eastman ( )
7 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 809 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Around the world, organizations of all kinds are merging at a frenetic pace. In a comparative study of two Canadian higher education mergers - that of the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education with the University of Toronto in 1996, and that of the Technical University of Nova Scotia with Dalhousie University in 1997 - Julia Eastman and Daniel Lang examine why and how universities merge and why some mergers succeed while others fail.Drawing on extensive interviews with university members, public officials, and experts in organizational restructuring, and on their professional involvement in the two mergers, the authors elucidate what prompts higher education mergers, what is involved in the process and what determines the outcomes. They link practice with organizational theory and offer observations about the roles of history, economics, power and human relations in post-secondary educational systems. Suitable for university and college officials, educators, social scientists, and public policy-makers, the style and approach of Mergers in Higher Education make it an indispensable resource for all those involved in planning and negotiating university and other public sector mergers, both in Canada and abroad
Lead them to water and pay them to drink an experiment with services and incentives for college achievement by Joshua David Angrist ( )
5 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
High rates of attrition, delayed completion, and poor achievement are growing concerns at colleges and universities in North America. This paper reports on a randomized field experiment involving two strategies designed to improve these outcomes among first-year undergraduates at a large Canadian university. One treatment group was offered peer advising and organized study group services. Another was offered substantial merit-scholarships for solid, but not necessarily top, first year grades. A third treatment group combined both interventions. Service take-up rates were much higher for students offered both services and scholarships than for those offered services alone. Females also used services more than males. No program had an effect on grades for males. However, first-term grades were significantly higher for females in the two scholarship treatment groups. These effects faded somewhat by year's end, but remain significant for females who planned to take enough courses to qualify for a scholarship. There also appears to have been an effect on retention for females offered both scholarships and services. This effect is large enough to generate an overall increase in retention. On balance, the results suggest that a combination of services and incentives is more promising than either alone
There Are Mergers, and There Are Mergers The Forms of Inter-institutional Combination by Daniel Lang ( )
1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Mergers have for many years been a fact of life in the for-profit private sector. Recently they have become more common in the public sector and in the not-for-profit private sector. Estimates place the number of mergers among colleges and universities in the last decade at approximately 500. Why do colleges and universities merge? When they use the term "merger" what do they understand it to mean? How is a merger alike or different from other forms of inter-institutional combination. This study addresses those questions by examining the factors that motivate merger, and by determining the extent to which these factors are unique to merger or motivate other forms of inter-institutional co-operation as well. To do this, the study develops a taxonomy of inter-institutional combination, and of the factors that induce institutional behaviour towards co-operation
