Abstract:In every organization, the involvement of members in its administration and management is very essential to the achievement of its goals and objectives. This article contains the results of an investigation into the involvement of the student union in the administration of three tertiary institutions in Nigeria: Ogun State University, Ogun State Polytechnic, and Ogun State College of Education. The perception of academic and nonacademic staff, students, heads of institutions, student union executives and parents of students about the involvement of the student union in the administration of higher education were investigated. The conclusion is that there was no significant difference in the perception of the academic and nonacademic staff and that of students and parents. There was, however, a significant difference in the perception of the student union executives and that of heads of institutions. Bibliogr., sum.
