Студенческое представительство в университетском управлении: факторы вовлеченности
The article is devoted to student representation, as an aspect of university management that is underinvestigated in Russia, but important in the world context. Based on previous studies on students` representation the author tests the key hypotheses on its possible determinants using dataset on elections of student representation bodies in the Higher School of Economics (Moscow) in 2019. Three groups of factors are highlighted according to the participation intensity. The general factors include education level, financial, academic, and social success, the number of groupmates-candidates. Next, most active representation participants are also characterized by male gender, state education financing, metropolitan origin, interaction with university faculty members, positive perception of competition in elections. At last, less active participants are characterized by female gender, commercial financing of education, regional origin, diversified information consumption, negative perception of a large competition in elections. Based on the main results of the study the author provides recommendations for the university educational policy: reduce internal inequalities and cleavages in both social and informational aspects.
