McMillin, Group Coordinator). Section 2, "The Compact in Action," contains": (5) "Shared Governance at Butler University" (Patricia Bacon); (6) "Workload Differentiation at Ithaca College" (Garry Brodhead); and (7) "Workload Rebalancing at St. Mary's College of California" (Ed Biglin). The final section, "The Compact in Context," includes: (8) "A Panel of Experts Responds" (Christine M. Licata, Robert M. Diamond, Mary Burgan, Charles E. Glassick, C. K. Weiser, and Ric Weibl); (9) "Reflections on the Faculty Work Project" (Jon Wergin); (10) "A Holistic Model for Faculty and Institutional Development" (Jacqueline A.
