Administrations have increased their control over finance, student affairs, community outreach, and instruction at Public Universities over the past 20 years. Critics have argued that the on-going financial crises have given emergency power to administrations to create a higher- education model that is both expensive to run and difficult to reform as a result of its focus on status, its view of students as customers consigned to a lifetime of debt from student loans, and its growing reliance on top-down administration. The role of faculty is increasing marginalized in the process.
The panel is expected to provide a platform for frank, free, and foundational discussion, which should be of interest to faculty, staff, students, and administrators.
