Studying Political Tensions in University Governance A Focus on Board Member Constructions of Role
Posted on 10 January 2017 by Azlinda Abd Rahim (Assistant Manager)
Abstract

The article considers the importance of examining how members of university governing bodies understand and perform their roles in the politically complex context of contemporary higher education. While a growing body of scholarly literature is devoted to the study of university governance, much of this work neglects the human aspects of decision-making in the presence of the competing interests, societal expectations and government intervention currently besetting universities. This article argues that, given this context, understanding of the factors impacting on university governing body effectiveness will be greatly enhanced by interpretive analysis of qualitative data obtained from university governance practitioners themselves.
