Statement on Student-Faculty-Administrative Relationships.
National Association of State Universities and Land Grant Colleges, Washington, DC.
In the fall of 1968, President Fred Harvey Harrington of the University of Wisconsin and NASULGC appointed a committee on student-faculty-administrative relationships. Its charge was to produce a statement that would help guide universities in involving students and faculty in meaningful ways in governance. The report that emerged does not offer specific prescriptions but rather "insights into governance problems which can be garnered from an appreciation of history, of organizational theory, and of experiments in other institutions." It discusses the development of contemporary administrative relationships, the theoretical and practical implications of (including obstacles to) changes in governance, and 3 models of college/university government that have recently come into practice: the academic community, the independent constituency, and the city council. It is the intention of this committee to follow this general report with another one examining in closer detail some specific examples of college/university government. (JS)
