Free-Market Group Says Wisconsin System's Structure Should Be Changed

The Chronicle :

The free-market-oriented Wisconsin Policy Research Institute has issued a report saying that the governance structure of the University of Wisconsin system is inefficient and needs to be reconsidered.

The report argues that the current structure, which gives the faculties, staffs, and students of various campuses a say in systemwide decisions, is “more oriented to providing reassurance to university constituencies” than providing coherent management. The report recommends that the system’s governance be overhauled to give its flagship campus, at Madison, its own governing board so that it could better compete in the national higher-education market.

There are two quite distinct ideas here, and it's not clear what their relationship is.
