Governance and the Public Good by William G Tierney pdf free download. Any observer of higher education over the last decade will undoubtedly point out three trends that appear to be taking shape, and two tensions that have subsequently arisen. The trends pertain to privatization, politicization, and restructuring. The tensions refer to increased demands for accountability and questions regarding autonomy. Whether the tensions have created the trends or the trends have caused the tensions is a bit like asking which came first: the chicken or the egg. Although an argument over whether there is a linear relationship between the tensions and trends might be of interest to academics interested in organizational and system theory, such a discussion is of limited utility.

All five topics warrant investigation and analysis because understanding them will help determine the role of the twenty-first century research university. By suggesting that topics such as accountability and autonomy are worthy of discussion and analysis, I walk a fine line between those who are more interested in theoretical discussions about organizational life and those who desire immediate solutions to what academe should be doing during a time of great flux. On the one side are those who have little interest in the specific actions of the university and are more interested in the university as an idea and organizational change as a theory.
