Report of the President's Committee On Student Involvement in the University.
Benovich, Joseph B.; And Others
Originally established to consider expanded faculty and student involvement in the governance of Cleveland State University, the Committee decided to recommend changes within the existing governmental structure rather than encourage the establishment of a new system. Background material was studied, meetings were held and 2 questionnaires were administered--one to deans, departmental chairmen and various other academic units at Cleveland State, and another to 66 universities asking for information on student involvement in governance at their institutions. The responses to the second questionnaire are tabulated. All of the universities indicated they were "rethinking" or had recently revised their policies on student involvement in governance. Brief explanations of their reasons for doing so are offered. Recommendations of the committee call for student membership on 17 university committees and representation at departmental meetings. Recommendations also include provisions for: the number of students to be included on each committee, method of selection, academic qualifications necessary, and terms of appointment. (JS)
