Description - Managing Good Governance in Higher Education by Michael Shattock
"Michael Shattock, former registrar of Warwick, can lay claim to having invented the serious study of university governance in Britain." Public How has university governance changed and developed over the last quarter of a century? How can people actively engaged in university governance manage the increasingly complex issues that confront them? This book addresses university governance as extending throughout an institution from the governing body to senates/academic boards and the organs of governance at faculty and departmental levels. It considers the legal structure of higher education institutions; the impact of developments in corporate governance in the private sector; the reforms in modern university governance, including in academic governance; the practicalities of managing governance, drawing on selected case studies; and the role of governance in relation to institutional performance. Whilst the primary market for the book is the United Kingdom, many of the themes addressed are of international applicability.
The book provides both a practical guide for those actively involved in governing universities -- lay governors, senior managers and academics -- and a key scholarly text for students of higher education, managers in universities and colleges, and policy makers.
