Edhe 351: Organization & Policy

Higher Education

This course is designed to introduce students to advanced debates, research, and frameworks that shape policy and governance in higher education. The course is divided into four content areas. First, we situate our learning of public policy issues in higher education via a brief introduction and macro overview of governance structures in higher education. We then examine factors that shape the current governance landscape of higher education and national policy discourse. Afterwards, we will consider the effectiveness of standing policies and review the contemporary governance structures, practices, procedures, and/or protocols within various states via case study analysis. We will close the course with an exploration of the innovative policy along with governance and programmatic solutions proposed to address the changing political landscape of postsecondary education.
