Summary

In Competing Conceptions of Academic Governance, William G. Tierney brings together faculty members, administrators, and policy experts to discuss differing views of academic governance at institutional, national, and international levels. Topics include the effects of globalization and the prospect of international accreditation; balancing the entrepreneurial and philosophical goals of higher education; the interaction between state governments and public universities; and the conflicting interests and roles of boards of trustees, administrators, and faculty. Carefully weighing various models and strategies, this volume provides new ways of understanding and addressing the changes that are transforming higher education.''The broad perspectives on university governance put forward in this book, relevant to all who are 'negotiating the perfect storm,' make it worthwhile reading.'' -- Review of Higher Education''This book arrives at an important moment in the evolution of university governance... The research and scholarship in this volume provide a detailed depiction of the challenges faced by governing boards and postsecondary leaders.'' -- Journal of Higher Education
