The Faculty Role in Campus Governance. Proceedings of a Statewide Conference in Maryland (Catonsville, Maryland, October 1983).
Sumler, David E., Ed.
Proceedings of a conference in Maryland on the faculty role in college governance are presented. A survey was conducted in 1982 to discover how faculty members at Maryland colleges and universities contribute to decision-making on their individual campuses. Following the survey, the statewide conference was held to discuss the results. The survey identified some significant differences between administrative and faculty view as to appropriate faculty roles in different types of decision-making. The proceedings provide a keynote address, detailed report and analysis of the survey results, and summaries of group discussions. The titles and authors of conference presentations are as follows: "The Control of the Campus: A National Issue" (Ernest L. Boyer); "Perceptions and Practice: A Maryland Survey on Governance" (Robert O. Berdahl and Stewart Edelstein); "Faculty Involvement in Retrenchment" (James M. Nickell); "Administrative Appointments" (L. Benita Mackie); "Curriculum Decisions" (James E. Bell); "Campus Budget Decisions" (Hugh Graham); and "Long-Range Planning" (Horace Judson). Appended are the survey instrument and a tabular report of responses to questions. (SW)
