Under the loosely-coupled system, the development of different disciplines not only holds autonomy and relative independence, but also maintains interaction with organizations. Protected by loosely-coupled system, different disciplines can adopt development measures that suit their circumstances to cope with the environment and pursue legitimacy. The evaluation and resource allocation in discipline governance should be conducted in accordance with the laws and characteristics of different disciplines, reflecting their own particularity, so as to avoid requiring them with uniform mechanical standards. Loosely-coupled discipline governance, conforming to the characteristics of university organizations and the uncertainty of discipline development, will help to deal with the fragmentation of external and internal environment and promote the innovation of discipline development. At the same time, in order to drive the overall promotion of disciplines and the realization of organizational goals, the coupling of disciplines should be strengthened through the construction of shared values and organizational culture.

Key words: loosely-coupled system, discipline governance, organizational goals, integration
