Abstract

[Since 1995 Canadian federal and provincial governments’ higher education policies have altered governance arrangements in Canada’s higher education sector, intruding on university governance in some areas and retreating in other areas. A variety of structural, legal, treasury and information-based policy mechanisms have been employed by governments in new ways to achieve governance reform. Neo-institutionalism captures the impact of Canadian federalism and the unique features of the legislative framework for higher education on the politics of the reforms. While the reforms have been embraced by some policy actors in higher education, they have been resisted by others. The politics associated with the reforms have intensified intergovernmental relations in higher education and presented challenges to institutional autonomy, leadership, and collegial decision-making.]
