A Study in Role Conflict: The Departmental Chairman in Decisions on Academic Tenure.
Lane, Frederick S.
This report considers the tenure system and its relation to academic freedom and focuses on Florida and the University of Florida. Role conflicts between faculty and administrators are presented including a discussion of viewpoints over budget allocations. An overview is given of the position or role attributes, status, and functions of the departmental chairman and an examination is undertaken of attitudes toward tenure and the tenure process. The paper concludes with a two part discussion covering: (1) recognition by the chairman about the nature of disagreement over departmental management as related to the tenure process; and (2) an analysis of role conflict resolution in decisions on academic tenure.
