THE ROLE OF FACULTY IN COMMUNITY COLLEGE POLICY MAKING.
BENTLEY, NORMA E.
BY VIRTUE OF THEIR COMPETENCE IN SPECIFIC DISCIPLINES AND IN EDUCATION, JUNIOR COLLEGE FACULTIES ARE QUALIFIED TO MAKE RESPONSIBLE DECISIONS IN EDUCATIONAL POLICY MATTERS AND SHOULD HAVE AN ACTIVE, MEANINGFUL ROLE IN COLLEGE GOVERNANCE. THE EXTENT OF SUCH PARTICIPATION SHOULD BE THE SAME AS IN OTHER INSTITUTIONS OF HIGHER EDUCATION. FACULTIES SHOULD BE PRIMARILY RESPONSIBLE FOR DETERMINING EDUCATIONAL POLICIES IN THEIR INSTITUTIONS, FOR DETERMINING FACULTY MEMBERSHIP, FOR BUDGETING, AND FOR SELECTION OF ADMINISTRATIVE OFFICERS. THEY SHOULD BE FULLY INFORMED ABOUT INSTITUTIONAL PLANS AND EXPENDITURES. SUCH FACULTY INVOLVEMENT IS POSSIBLE ONLY WHEN THE COLLEGE PRESIDENT IS RESPONSIBLE DIRECTLY TO THE GOVERNING BOARD AND THE BOARD IS SEPARATE FROM THOSE OF ELEMENTARY AND SECONDARY SCHOOL SYSTEMS. THE STRUCTURE AND PROCEDURES FOR EFFECTING FACULTY PARTICIPATION IN GOVERNANCE WILL VARY AMONG INSTITUTIONS. CLEAR AND OPEN CHANNELS OF COMMUNICATION ARE ESSENTIAL. (WO)
