Academic Collective Bargaining and Regional Accreditation. An Occasional Paper.
Fisk, Robert S.; Duryea, E. D.
In recent decades, an increase in federal and state support for higher education has carried with it a correlative increase in surveillance by government agencies. Although the role of regional accrediting bodies has not yet been challenged directly, state and federal governments have embarked on policies and actions that bear upon their function. Faculty unionization is an important influence affecting the management of colleges and universities, and is thus a new condition that regional accrediting bodies will have to consider. A study was undertaken in 1975 under the auspices of the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools to observe the effects of unionization on the accreditation process. The followup study in 1976, reported here, involved the input of the three regional accrediting associations regarded as most experienced with academic collective bargaining: the Middle States Association, the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools, and the New England Association of Schools and Colleges.
