In other words, the University is a stakeholder organization. Stakeholders of university can be divided into the core stakeholders, the important stakeholders and the edge of stakeholders on three levels. Stakeholders of university have been in the game. In order to safeguard the interests of all parties related to the interests of university , we should properly arrange the power structure of university. The power structure of university, by its very nature, is the distribution of the power of university from all walks of life and interests of different groups , as well as their mutual relations between the role of power. University as an organization, there are many factors which impact on the organizational structure, however, the organizational structure of the allocation of power as one of the factors ,is the most direct impact on the nature, the organizational structure also is the end result of the configuration of power.

University can only according to its capability, overall, and strive to achieve an ideal "Pareto optimal" state. This requires the university must deal well with the interests of a part and the interests of another part, the long-term interests and short-term interests ,the local interests and the interests of the overall relationship to get dynamic balance between the interests of the principal. So,we should form the checks and balances of power, optimize the power structure of university .
