I'm very perplexed as to how the terms College and University are archaically used to denote associations of people, but are in modern times being used to denote buildings or realty.
What are standard organizational structures in a legal sense for different Colleges in a US-based Research University??
For example, if the corporation of the University Trustees makes the policies providing for faculty appointments in a College of Arts and also in a College of Education, will these different Colleges typically be like departments in the same corporation, or do they have separate Legal Personalities?
Are the Colleges associations or corporations, or merely administrative units defined by the internal policy of the Trustees to distinguish different collections of offices?
Do the Colleges have members, and if so who are the members? Are all the matriculated members, or just current students? Are the faculty members of the College?
