Departmental Governance. Interim Report.
Duke Univ., Durham, NC.
This report reviews the policy-making processes within departments at Duke University, as well as the relationships between departments and central administration on the one hand, and with students on the other hand. Specifically, the report examines and makes recommendations regarding: (1) the office of the departmental chairman, his selection, term of office, incentives, and powers; (2) faculty mechanisms of departmental governance; (3) mechanisms for student participation: undergraduate and graduate program committees and other methods of ensuring greater student participation; and (4) the composition of the Advisory Committee to the Dean of Faculty. A proposed statement on procedural standards regarding the renewal or non-renewal of faculty appointments by the American Association of University Professors, and a separate statement of views on student participation in departmental governance are included in the appendix.
