The purpose of this study is to explore the university governance practices related to the roles and powers in public universities in Pakistan. University governance has remained a crucial subject to the set of rules and regulations. This makes it more daunting that each university provides a different set of governance circumstances in public universities in Pakistan. A qualitative case study approach was used. Interviews were taken from 16 participants of public sector universities in Pakistan. The study aims to examine the constitutional issues and challenges that public university stakeholders encounter in governance practices in public universities from top administration and deans’ perspectives. Therefore, two key categories of stakeholders were chosen to participate in this research. They include top administrators (e.g., vicechancellors, pro-vice chancellors, registrars) and deans. The study was limited to the roles and powers of university stakeholders in governance processes and identified ambiguities in this area. Data revealed that governance processes were centralized. The chancellor and vice-chancellor retained all authority, as well as the definition in the public university’s constitution, was unclear. This hampered process being conducted smoothly.
