The Student Role in Faculty Selection, Evaluation And Retention.
Jenks, R. Stephen; And Others
Arguing that it is difficult to discuss the student's role in faculty selection, evaluation and retention outside the broader context of the student's role in decision making (see Jenks, HE 001 251), the author describes the new unicameral system at the University of New Hampshire and some of the processes the institution went through in achieving the reorganization. The Committee on Government Organization found that most institutions that had recently included students in the governance process had done so by adding students to existing decision-making bodies. They decided that merely adding students to the Old University Senate "would leave an already inefficient and unwieldy body even more so" and thus a complete restructuring was necessary. Two convocations and many open meetings were held to explain the details and purposes of the proposed changes before they were approved by a referendum, the president, and the board of trustees. The new Senate held its first meeting in June 1969. (JS)
