FACULTY PARTICIPATION IN ACADEMIC GOVERNANCE. REPORT OF THE AAHE TASK FORCE ON FACULTY REPRESENTATION AND ACADEMIC NEGOTIATIONS, CAMPUS GOVERNANCE PROGRAM.
WEBER, ARNOLD R.; AND OTHERS
A NINE-MEMBER TASK FORCE STUDIED FACULTY-ADMINISTRATION RELATIONS AT 28 PUBLIC AND SIX PRIVATE COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES WHERE MAJOR DEVELOPMENTS IN FACULTY GOVERNANCE WERE TAKING PLACE. MAJOR OBJECTIVES OF THE STUDY WERE TO EXAMINE FACTORS CONTRIBUTING TO FACULTY UNREST AND TO RECOMMEND PROCEDURES FOR IMPROVING FACULTY PARTICIPATION IN CAMPUS GOVERNMENT. CHAPTERS OF THE REPORT DISCUSS--(1) FACTORS GIVING RISE TO FACULTY UNREST, (2) FACTORS DETERMINING THE GOVERNMENTAL ROLE OF THE FACULTY, (3) MAJOR ISSUES AND THE INSTITUTIONAL FRAMEWORK WITHIN WHICH THEY ARE CONSIDERED, (4) ORGANIZATIONAL FORMS USED TO IMPLEMENT FACULTY REPRESENTATION, (5) TECHNIQUES AND SANCTIONS USED IN FACULTY-ADMINISTRATION DECISIONMAKING, AND (6) COMPREHENSIVE MODELS OF FACULTY REPRESENTATION INCORPORATING DIVERSE COMBINATIONS OF VALUES, ISSUES, ORGANIZATIONAL FORMS, AND TECHNIQUES. A SUMMARY CHAPTER CONCLUDES THAT THE MAIN SOURCES OF DISCONTENT ARE (1) THE FACULTY'S DESIRE TO PARTICIPATE IN THE DETERMINATION OF POLICIES AFFECTING ITS PROFESSIONAL STATUS AND PERFORMANCE AND (2) THE ESTABLISHMENT OF COMPLEX, STATEWIDE SYSTEMS OF HIGHER EDUCATION WHICH HAVE DECREASED LOCAL CONTROL OVER IMPORTANT CAMPUS ISSUES. A SYSTEM OF CAMPUS GOVERNANCE IS RECOMMENDED WHICH IS BUILT ON THE CONCEPT OF "SHARED AUTHORITY," WITH FACULTY AND ADMINISTRATION JOINTLY CONCERNED FOR A WIDE VARIETY OF ISSUES, INCLUDING EDUCATIONAL AND ADMINISTRATIVE POLICIES, PERSONNEL ADMINISTRATION, AND ECONOMIC MATTERS.
