The Corporate Partners of Higher Education Associations: A Social Network Analysis
Higher education associations, the nonprofit entities that serve as professional development organizations for postsecondary administrators and faculty, are sites of university-industry (UI) contact, although these organizations are rarely examined in the UI literature. This study utilizes social network analysis to discover the indirect connections between industry and the academy as seen through sponsorship relations between corporations and associations. The findings show that several influential North American companies are connected to prominent higher education associations, particularly those associations that serve 'managerial professionals.' These corporate-association ties may be pathways for increased market-like behaviors in postsecondary education.
