Faculty Trusteeship in Higher Education. A Study of the Governance of Roosevelt University. Final Report.
Perlman, Daniel H.
This document presents a study of the historical origins and outcomes of the practice of elected faculty representation on the Board of Trustees of Roosevelt University. It examines the reasons why the University's founders chose to adopt this mode of governance when they established the institution in 1945, and the University's experience with the practice of faculty trusteeship over the succeeding 25 years. This historical analysis of the experience of the governing board of Roosevelt University is set in the context of American higher education by means of (1) a brief discussion of the origins and functions of the governing boards of American colleges and universities; (2) a review of the major previous studies of governing boards; (3) an historical analysis of the issue of faculty representation on college and university governing boards; and (4) an examination of the extent to which faculty representation on the governing board has been or is being adopted as a mode of governance among institutions of higher education.
