ABSTRACT
The article characterizes college and university administration in the United States. According to the author, the administration of colleges and universities in the country is greatly influenced by constituency. Among universities, the administrative task includes the preparation of a curriculum for the students and the selection of teachers who will handle each subject offered by the institution. The author classifies colleges as those institutions established originally by a religious denomination and universities as state-run institutions. The differences in administration between the two types are considered.
