Chapter 2: Who Is in Charge? Shared governance - trustees = fiduciary responsibility, final authority, delegate to president, not experts on academic issues - faculty = supreme on educational issues, recruitment and tenure of faculty, independent entrepreneurs, view profession (not university) as primary entity to which they are attached - employees - students = prepare for future leadership positions, prompt active alumni who contribute to the well-being of the institution and future students, - administrators = obtain resources to facilitate realization of good ideas that faculty members have generated, fund raising, external relations Why public control costs better than private - public institutions cannot increase tuition, either because tuition is set by the governor and state legislature or because the university is informed that the governor and state legislature want to hold tuition constant - state govts have competing demands for funds; state govts believe essential to keep tuition low to maintain accessibility
