The paradigms of governance in higher education systems
McDaniel, Olaf C.

Data: 1996
Resum: The relationship between governments (in their various forms) and higher education institutions has been the subject of much scrutiny and debate. Comparative analysis of different higher education systems has led to general assumptions that U. S. institutions have much greater autonomy than their European counterparts. In this study, the relationship between governments and higher education institutions in 75 countries, states and provinces is compared, using 19 indicators. We then use the results to examine whether current views on the differences expected are in fact accurate. The results show no visible homogeneous patterns between the U. S. or the West European countries and that the differences between the systems have not been interpreted precisely enough. The article ends with an assessment of the current level of institutional autonomy in the 75 states and countries involved.
