The Academic Implications of Collective Bargaining: A Case Study of The City College of New York.
Dill, David D.
Throughout the history of the university the autonomy and control of the faculty has oscillated. In the middle ages faculty sustained self-government through academic guilds; in America faculty control was rekindled through the development of science and the assertion of professionalism. However, faculty again perceive a decline in their control over the university and academic policy, and they are turning to a new means of influence: unionization and collective bargaining. This analysis explores the effectiveness of this process in altering the authority structure of a college or university and the systemic changes that result, using the City College of New York as a case study. Although the experience of City College and CUNY reflect a unique set of conditions, much of what is now occuring may be generalized to other institutions of higher education. (Author/PG)
