St. Johnland University, Kings Park NY

  2. 2. LOCATIONIntended to be located on thegrounds of the Kings ParkPsychiatric Center on Long IslandNY.The facility closed in 1996 and is 156 acres which sits majestically on thecurrently state-own land. Nissequogue River (click on map for higher- resolution) (Kings Park Psychiatric Center, n.d.)
  3. 3. HISTORICAL BACKGROUND• The Kings Park Lunatic Asylum was established in 1885 on more than 800 acres.• A self-sufficient farm community “The Society of St. Johnland” was established, providing work for thousands of staff members and nurses.• The name was changed in 1895 to Kings Park State Hospital• In 1900, the hospital housed 2,697 patients and 454 staff members (Kings Park Psychiatric Center , n.d.)
  4. 4. HISTORICAL BACKGROUND• In the 50s, pharmaceutical company Smith, Kline, & French began marketing Thorazine directly through the state governments to the hospitals. • People who used to need constant supervision in a hospital setting were now able to lead more normal lives.• Eventually, with very few patients left living in the buildings, Kings Park began closing down in the 1970s, until no one was left in 1996.• Since 1996, several proposals have been made as to what to do with the land (Kantor, 1999).• No Decision has yet been made (Kings Park Psychiatric Center , n.d.)
  5. 5. MISSION• St. Johnland University is committed to science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education and innovation by enabling a first-class experience for students through engagement with the university‟s entrepreneurial spirit and support of creativity, and by earning income primarily from nongovernment sources. (adapted from Galbraith, 2010).“There is no metric in higher education comparable to money in business, and no goal comparable to „profits‟” (Birnbaum, 2004, p. 11)
  6. 6. EARNING INCOME FROM NONGOVERNMENT SOURCES• St. Johnland is a break from traditional universities.• The University is mapping a new model for sustaining, and even expanding, offerings in subjects like Optics and Photonics and applied Mathematics (Parry, 2010).• The University generates its operating income from the products of faculty scholarship. • While the faculty retains credit for the invention of a collegial product, the university retains ownership of the product.
  7. 7. WHY FOR-PROFIT?• A university focused on Scholarship and Academic Freedom• Faculty are free to pursue any scientific arena to uncover solutions to scientific problems (Donoghue, 2009).• These “solutions” translate into patents, inventions, and Intellectual property for the university.• Patents, inventions, and Intellectual property turn into revenue for the university• The university will generate its operating costs based upon the revenue generated by scholarship of its faculty and students.
  8. 8. ORGANIZATIONAL CHART• The university‟s organizational chart illustrates authority, hierarchy, delegation, and decentralization.• The chart provides a picture of the reporting structure (who reports to whom) and the various activities that are carried out by different departments and individuals (Bateman & Snell, 2009)• St. Johnland University is a dualistic bureaucratic system (Bateman & Snell, 2009).• Instead of having a single line of authority, the president draws from each functional area; Institutional and Academic• The organizational chart the dualistic structure originates at the highest level and continues throughout the university.
