HEL 8330: Governance, Ethics, and the Law of Higher Education

Course Description

This guide contains library resources and other resources to support HEL 8330. 

Course Description:

The effective governance and management of colleges and universities requires a broad understanding of not only the range of organizational frameworks that encompass the administrative and academic functions but also an awareness of the state and federal agencies that exert regulatory authority and influence through laws, policies, statutes, and planning/coordinating/governing boards. Depending upon an institution’s classification, structure, and type of control (public, private, for-profit), the approaches to governance can vary widely across multiple higher education settings, and in this course students will have an opportunity to explore and analyze the various organizational paradigms and practices as they apply to governing boards, presidential leadership, administrative and academic units, stakeholders, and external government bodies. Special consideration will also be given to the sources of higher education law and ethics in the governance process.
