Abstract

Higher education legislation, particularly at the state level, greatly affects the governance of institutions in ways often unanticipated by legislators. Nearly all states have legislated a coordinating or governing board for higher education, to centralize the planning and financing of public institutions in the state. Ohio’s Board of Regents, established in 1963, is used as a legislative case study of such a coordinating agency, and its ten year history is explained by the agenda-building perspective. This model charts issue creation, conflict expansion, and formal agenda entrance, while powerfully explaining the state and federal forces that necessitated such an agency.
