MOE Amends University President Selection Regulations|突破僵局 國立大學校長遴選辦法修正
The Ministry of Education is set to provide advance notice for amendments to the "Regulations for Administering the Criteria for Selection of the Commission of National University Presidents." There is a new stipulation that if a selection commission fails to carry out its duties or resolve selection disputes within a period of three months, it can be disbanded by university affairs committees.
Both National Taiwan University and National Yang-Ming University went through controversial presidential selections in recent years. On May 23, the Ministry of Education provided a second advance notice of amendments to the "Regulations for Administering the Criteria for Selection of the Commission of National University Presidents" with the aim of facilitating selection processes. There is a new stipulation that a selection commission can be disbanded by a university affairs committee if its workings don't conform to regulations, if it fails to carry out its duties, or if it cannot resolve selection disputes within a three-month period. Schools will be required to form a new commission within two months.
If the workings of a selection commission formed by a school are illegal or if there is something wrong with how it is implementing things, then returning the authority to disband the commission to the school is a comparatively more equal way to handle the issue.
National Taiwan University electrical engineering professor Wu Ruey-beei, who previously sued the Ministry of Education for meddling in the confirmation of Kuan Chung-ming, says that the ministry should directly disband a selection commission incapable of selecting a president because the new provision won't be of help to school affairs committees because of current regulations.
Only one-third of votes are needed to pass a resolution, so if you control one-third of the votes, you can get your desired outcome. Moreover, NTU has always had anonymous voting.
Frankly speaking, the review of our (presidential selection) this time was so specific. A large portion of the content of the Ministry of Education's amendments is definitely a response to the NTU case.
The amendments also set a limit of two terms on a person serving on one school selection commission. If a commission member and candidate are found to both be on the board of directors and supervisors of a for-profit business, they will be removed following conformation. Candidates must also disclose academic experience and concurrent positions. The MOE claims these changes give universities more autonomy. In response, higher education groups criticized the ministry for micromanagement, saying this will give rise to more problems.
