Watson, David – Perspectives: Policy and Practice in Higher Education, 2012
Inside the academy there is a cultural perspective that it should run itself, in the sense that "business as usual" should be done with no one's hands obviously on the levers. This theory reaches its high point in the "self-government" of Oxford and Cambridge colleges. In this article, the author explores the question,…

There has been a resurgence of interest in good practice in university governance. This may be due to a number of high profile vice-chancellor (and governor) departures, and especially the crisis at London Metropolitan University, where the Vice-Chancellor resigned in March 2009 following overclaimed public funding as a result of inaccurately…

Melville-Ross, Tim – Perspectives: Policy and Practice in Higher Education, 2010
In the private sector, it is clear that the chair is in charge of the board and the CEO in charge of the company. But in the author's view the chair's principal role is to act as an adviser or counsellor to the CEO and senior colleagues--hence the wisdom of having a chair who is involved in other organisations and the preference for people of a…
