To address the concern for efficient and economical graduate program administration, the Council of Graduate Schools has promoted centralized administration of graduate programs since the mid-1970s (Winetrobe 2006, 138-139; Council of Graduate Schools, 1976; (Mcgregor 2005, 477-494). Graduate programs in business administration, for example, which are professional terminal degree programs likened to medicine and law, are often categorized with degree programs from the arts and sciences and the humanities. The talk of centralization rarely involves the law or medical degree programs, but they often include graduate programs in business. Many of the comments to support centralized administration appear to be based on anecdotal evidence from university leaders who are currently associated with some sort of centralized operation, or on the limited research on centralized programs. No study or formal research uncovered has explored the perceptions of those professionals involved in graduate business program administration at public and private institutions. (Henig 2006, 1-3; Condor 2006, 123-158; Keating 2005, 11-15)
There has been no significant study or research to determine the level of graduate program administration decentralization at accredited schools of business or analysis of how decentralization is related (if at all) to other institutional characteristics. (Royles 2006, 137-156; Pike 2006, 157-178) In light of the limited literature and research on this topic, and based on comments made by graduate program directors, the specific objectives of this national study were to (a) determine the level of decentralization (school-based administration) of graduate business programs at public and private American Assembly of Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) accredited schools of business.

...Affirmative Action for Colleges and Universities Should Be Continued Minorities, specifically people of color, were routinely denied an equal opportunity to attend the school of their choice until relatively recently. The ideology that sanctioned and imposed racial segregation is the very reason affirmative action is necessary. Those of that same ideology make claims of reverse discrimination in reference to affirmative action. Without this contentious legal remedy to help ensure equality, the imbalance of opportunity in the U.S. would remain greatly on the side of the ethnic majority and discrimination would continue in much more obvious ways, more so than it does today. The evolution of cultural...
...?Women Colleges Exclusively opened to women, women’s colleges are s of higher learning that provide educational opportunities to women only (Harwarth, 1999). These colleges started in the mid- and late 19 century (Harwarth, Maline, & DeBra, I999). The need for higher education for women was driven by the various factors such as shortage of schools teachers, increase in labor-saving appliances in the home that made women redundant at home and also liberated them from their traditional role, and increased demand for higher education for women following the increased employment opportunities during the Civil War and in post World War II years (Harwarth, Maline, & DeBra, I999). Originally...

Hence, well-established as well as divided into municipal committees, town councils, union councils and officials, the US administrative agencies are steadily fulfilling their responsibilities, making the country strategic, administrative and economic giant on the one hand, and the political leader of the entire globe on the other.

... and the largest U.S. university, with nearly 500,000 students. Sperling and his supporters changed the mom-and-pop trade school scenario into a $30 billion industry by roping in such investors as Washington Post Co. and Goldman Sachs Group Inc. For-profit colleges give admissions to 12 percent of U.S. undergraduates and use 24 percent of U.S. Pell grants for poor students (Golden, 2010, Dec. 29).
Sperling supports for-profit colleges for providing the opportunity to low-income people to attain degrees and jobs. His reaction to the administration’s “onerous” initiatives was that it “would make it impossible for the sector to offer many programs” that help students to become teachers, nurses and police officers, and “would have...
