Joint Participation in Decision Making: A Study of Faculty Government and Faculty-Administrative Consultation at Fresno State College.
Deegan, W. L.; And Others
This is one of a group of studies on faculty organization and faculty government. Fresno State College was studied for (1) the nature and effectiveness of the procedures that had been devised for faculty-administrative consultation, (2) the process of faculty and administrative participation in governance through the Academic Senate and selected Senate and college-wide committees, and (3) fundamental issues in faculty government and faculty participation in institutional decision making. The data were obtained from analysis of documents and interviews with 93 faculty members and administrators is imperative, and that arbitrary administrative action is unacceptable. The most pressing problem the College faces is that of turning a society divided by factionalization into an academic democratically governed community. At present, participants in the Senate and college-wide committees are polarized and politicized. (NF)
