estmcturing of education
by Evans Witt
Chancellor J. Carlvle Sitterson
Tuesday strongly endorsed a central
governing board for all state-supported
higher educational institutions.
Sitterson gave his endorsement during
a discussion of the restructuring
controversy at the semi-annual meeting of
the Chancellor's Consultative Forum
Tuesday afternoon in the Morehead
The Chancello: criticized local boards
of trustees for each campus provided for
by proposed restructuring plans.
Sitterson's principal objections to the
local boards include the possibility of
continued political infighting amon- the
universities over appropriations and
indistinct lines of authority in the new
"The differentiation of power
between the local and governing boards
must be so clear that people know what
they are expected to do and what
evcrvone is expected to do." he said.
Sitterson also said he favored a
governing board with a membership of 30
to 50 persons. A smaller governing board
would be too susceptable to outside
pressure gourps, he said.
Sitterson's preference for this size
board is in conflict with a plan proposed
by Consolidated University President
William C. Friday and endorsed Monday
by the executive of the Board of
Trustees. Friday's plan calls for a
190-man governing board.
Complete budget authority and
academic program control must be
granted to the new governing board if it is
to function effectively. Sitterson said.
