Review

Mortimer and Sathre get to the heart of good governance in the 21st century. Good intentions and good ideas are not enough. This book offers ways to get things done in an increasingly competitive environment. (Tierney, William G.)

Ken Mortimer and Colleen Sathre make The Art and Politics of Academic Governance come alive. They argue that to survive, trustees, faculty leaders, academic administrators, and policy makers need to be market smart, mission centered, and politically savvy. How to do that is the challenge, and here the book is at its best as it weaves together high-stakes governance struggles with a remarkable command of the scholarly literature. For students of academic governance and practitioners alike, this book is a real find. (Ikenberry, Stanley O.)

This well written primer on the politics of institutional governance reminds us why process is as important as substance in academic decision making. The book emphasizes contemporary issues, the current bibliography will help bring readers up to date on the governance literature, and the several real-life cases illustrate how the best laid plans of academics, as well as mice, can easily go awry. (Robert Birnbaum)

Mortimer (president emeritus, Western Washington U. and U. of Hawaii) and Sathre (vice president emeritus of planning and policy, U. of Hawaii) note that academic governance is a complex, controversial, and 'messy' of blend of politics, influence, competing interests, and authority - and that managing and negotiating it properly is an art form. The issue here is shared governance and the relationships between school boards, administrators, and faculty. The authors discuss the elements of shared governance and, ideally, how they work together to produce desired results. This is a reprint of a 2007 book. (Book News)

I have used this book twice as the text for a graduate level course on organizational leadership and governance in higher education, and both times it has been an excellent guide for students to the ins and outs of the behind-the-scene workings of colleges and universities. I especially appreciate the excellent explanation of shared governance.

The book is very broad book. I enjoyed reading it. However, I will recommend to complement some of its areas with more recent articles.
