Power and Purpose in Collegiate Government. The Role of the Faculty in Academic Planning.
Sandin, Robert T.
Presented in this document is a discussion of faculty participation in academic governance. Within this context, the discussion is broken into categories concerning oligarchy and anarchy, professionalism and unionization, academic policy and purpose, leadership and authority, and constitution and structure. It is felt that much of the present agitation over faculty rights in academic government is misplaced. Furthermore, it is part of a deplorable drift toward unionization in the profession of college teaching. The dominance of the labor-management model is tending to fragmentize the collegiate system into bailiwicks, presided over by interest groups. It is felt that such a system will be less purposive, more susceptible to sectarian pressures, and more responsive to private interests. (HS)
