about this item

Governments in all parts of the world are engaged in radical reform and reshaping of higher education to achieve economic, social and political objectives. They recognize that to achieve their objectives they need institutions which have autonomy and more freedom to help realise their goals. The challenge is to define autonomy and what forms will best meet the needs of governments, institutions, and other stakeholders.Turcan, Reilly, and Bugaian have developed a new and critical understanding of university autonomy by bringing together original case studies based on a holistic view of university autonomy. The authors evaluate university autonomy by introducing five interfaces that characterize external and internal interactions between modern universities and their key stakeholders. (Re)Discovering University Autonomy has far-reaching implications for leaders and managers, researchers, educators, practitioners, and policy makers by addressing modern challenges to university autonomy in Europe and beyond in a new and innovative way.
