EDU492 Governance, Policy, and Administration of Higher Education

Students gain a deeper and more nuanced perspective on the nature of colleges and universities as organizations. This seminar course helps students become more sophisticated analysts and interpreters of colleges and universities, particularly with respect to the contours of senior decision-making and organizational change. Key questions addressed throughout the course include: what considerations shape the decision-making of senior administrators, such as presidents and provosts, and other key stakeholders, such as trustees and faculty? What tensions arise from the competing interests of key stakeholders? Who – if anyone – is in control of colleges and universities? To what extent can anyone change a college or university?
