California State University – Sacramento

1. Diaz, Amparo Guadalupe. Designing an effective statewide entity for higher education.

Degree: M.P.P.A., Public Policy and Administration, 2019, California State University – Sacramento

California is among a handful of states with no statewide entity for higher education. These entities, if well-structured, play a critical role in helping states achieve their higher education needs. There is growing interest among policy makers and higher education advocates to create a statewide entity for higher education, which may reflect current and prior intersegmental efforts. To help inform the state???s efforts, I conducted and analyzed semi-structured interviews with nine higher education leaders and experts in California to make recommendations about different organizational elements that can make a new statewide entity for higher education more effective. Using Bolman and Deal???s (2013) structural, human resources, political, and symbolic frames to ground my analysis, I found that with each of the notable functions of this type of entity, such as coordination, oversight, governance, and research, comes a set of tradeoffs that the state should carefully consider in the design of this entity. However, decision-making around each of the four frames and the role of this entity should be driven by its charge, which has been stated differently by key stakeholders. I recommend state and higher education segment leadership begin by determining a clear and achievable charge and proceed to determining an appropriate level of authority. This will solidify the entity???s place within the higher education landscape. I make further recommendations on leadership, staffing, agenda-setting, and culture with the aim of informing how each of these impacts??? organizational effectiveness. Advisors/Committee Members: Jez, Su Jin.
