Proposed Alterations In The Governance Of The University.
American Association of Univ. Professors, Washington, DC.
The introduction reads: "We are dissatisfied with the style or manner of administration at Stanford. Hitherto the faculty and students have had insufficient information to discuss University policies effectively. Information that has been provided has come too little and too late. Our goal is for greater participation in setting University policy and not just ratifying it. Hence numerous recommendations ask for a greater quantity of timely information relevant to major decisions and urge increased faculty and student participation in the decision-making process." The resolutions, which are accompanied by discussion and which were accepted by the Stanford chapter of the A.A.U.P., deal with: the Board of Trustees, appointment of administrative officers, discussion of University issues, faculty and student participation in decision making, the student role in governance, crisis handling, financial matters, protection of personal privacy, and the implications for the university of external social pressures.
