EDL 738 - Policy Making and Leadership in Higher Education


Credits: Three (3)
This course provides an overview of the missions, governance, and organizational structures of American higher education institutions. The unique system of governance in higher education is explored, including administrative roles, responsibilities, and leadership issues for administrators, faculty and staff. Institutional, system, state, and federal governing mechanisms as they relate to each other are also explored. At all levels, the effective higher education leader will understand the interplay of historical legacy, public policy, internal and external organizational and governing structures, and individual roles, and how to navigate these areas to effect sound decision making that supports academic integrity while addressing the needs of higher education as a business entity.
