Urban planning directors, for instance, oversee land usage and developments within growing communities. Governing boards have the ultimate responsibility to appoint and assess the performance of the president. Birnbaum does this by providing case studies of higher education administration through five fictitious institutions and by showing how multidisciplinary management theories either do or do not answer the unique challenges of a university. Public administration roles can also be found in the nonprofit sector, with many administrators acting as budget or economic development directors.

With debates over the recent trends, university organizations, governing associations, and numerous postsecondary institutions themselves have set forth policy statements on governance.

      Birnbaum does this by providing case studies of higher education administration through five fictitious institutions and by showing how multidisciplinary management theories either do or do not answer the unique challenges of a university. Time is of the essence in a crisis, and public administrators need to have the organizational skills and knowledge to deploy necessary aid rapidly, safely and efficiently. Typical areas of faculty governance work include departmental and degree-level curricular matters; policies on such matters as reappointment, tenure and promotion; academic policies for student enrollment, dismissal, and graduation; and assessment and program review. According to Lapworth, the rise of the notion of corporate governance and the decline of the shared or consensual governance can be seen to be a result of the decline in academic participation, a growing tendency towards managerialism and the new environment where the universities are operating. Leaders in community colleges, proprietary colleges, community-based programs, and universities are also educational leaders.
