Student Participation in Governance at UC Davis.
Jones, Susan Holtzer
Survey results pertaining to the development of a campus plan for student participation for the University of California at Davis campus are presented. The data were derived from a two-part questionnaire, which is appended. Part one contains five questions designed to measure levels of student participation, and part two contains six open-ended questions designed to elicit information regarding procedures, values, and attitudes toward participation. Findings include the following: nearly all academic departments report student participation, while a large proportion of administrative units have no students involved in decision making; student participants are selected by their peers more often in academic departments than in administrative units; graduate students participate more in proportion to their numbers; graduate students participate far more in academic departments while undergraduates participate far more in administrative units; and communication was seen as the chief purpose and value of student participation. Two models of student participation are described, and a presidential statement of university policy on student participation in governance is included. (SW)
