Abstract

The single campus university structure is a traditional model in that all the teaching, research and administrative units are located at one place. However, with the growth of population and the expansion of the geographical area of a city, it becomes necessary either to extend the activities of an existing university to other locations, or to start new universities or to convert existing higher education institutions into universities. This has happened in many countries particularly during the last couple of decades. For one or the other reason, multi-campus universities are on the rise. The purpose of this paper is two-fold: (1) to discuss alternative organizational structures that may have a bearing on overall administrative and allocative efficiency, and (2) to critically examine the merits and demerits of alternative teaching modes that these universities can adopt.
