Summary

Measures of state regulation of universities were studied to determine characteristics of states that may be associated with regulatory tendencies, as well as college characteristics that may protect them from regulation. The focus was academic, budgetary, and personnel regulation. Three national data sources were utilized, along with questionnaire responses from 86 public, Ph.D.-granting universities in 49 states. State variables possibly linked to regulation include: state appropriations, public college enrollments, tax effort and capacity, population growth and density, the governor's power, and powers/roles of the legislature and state education board. College variables include: age, size, constitutional autonomy, number of doctoral programs, funding, and the quality of the faculty and the study body. Six measures of academic regulation concerned state authority to: define campus mission, add new undergraduate/graduate programs, review or discontinue existing college programs, and add or discontinue departments. The seven measures of budgetary regulation include: control over expenditures after allocation, and retention and control of tuition. Personnel regulation variables include state-imposed control over: number of faculty and non-faculty positions, and salary schedules. Results of regression analysis are discussed. (SW)
