Abstract

This article is based on a national comparative study of state higher education governance structures. The study sought to improve understanding of how differences in the state governance structures affect system performance. This article develops a new f ramework for examining such structures and its implications for state policy. The study suggests that statewide governance is best understood as the result of the interaction between the framework's two dimensions: policy environment and system design.
