Abstract

The political model of university organization, whose central conceptual element is conflict, is a promising theoretical alternative to bureaucracy and community for purposes of describing and explaining such organization. To date, however, conflict theorists examining higher education have considered only the processes by which policy is formulated. The study reported herein examines instead the processes by which university disputes are waged over matters which go beyond policy alone. Typically, such conflicts are suppressed till they can no longer be contained, at which time they erupt with no institutional channels to direct their course.
