Comparative Higher Education Politics Interest Groups in Higher Education in the U.S.

Comparative Higher Education Politics : Interest Groups in Higher Education in the U.S. [The purpose of this chapter is to present the ways in which interest groups influence higher education policymaking in the United States. The chapter begins with a review of the literature on interest group activity at the federal and state level. We give more attention to the role of interest groups in the state-level policymaking arena because of the formal authority accorded to the states by the U.S. Constitution. We preface each of the federal and state literature reviews with a brief description of the key interest groups to provide context to the different settings. In a subsequent section, we present a case to illustrate the evolving role of interest group activity in higher education policymaking. We draw upon lobbying disclosures and media reports to analyze the Alabama Association for Higher Education and the University of Alabama System’s dark money scheme in order to depict the shifting landscape of institutional-based lobbying. The chapter ends with a brief discussion about the implications of stakeholder-based governance in higher education policy and practice.] http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png

Abstract

[The purpose of this chapter is to present the ways in which interest groups influence higher education policymaking in the United States. The chapter begins with a review of the literature on interest group activity at the federal and state level. We give more attention to the role of interest groups in the state-level policymaking arena because of the formal authority accorded to the states by the U.S. Constitution. We preface each of the federal and state literature reviews with a brief description of the key interest groups to provide context to the different settings. In a subsequent section, we present a case to illustrate the evolving role of interest group activity in higher education policymaking. We draw upon lobbying disclosures and media reports to analyze the Alabama Association for Higher Education and the University of Alabama System’s dark money scheme in order to depict the shifting landscape of institutional-based lobbying. The chapter ends with a brief discussion about the implications of stakeholder-based governance in higher education policy and practice.]
