Feedback from Faculty Development Day on Faculty Governance.
Schefter, Maria; Inoue, Yukiko
This report presents feedback on the University of Guam's Faculty Development Day (FDD) (January 19, 2001), which focused on collegial faculty governance and highlighted interactions between the Senate, faculty, and administration. Feedback came from feedback surveys designed to gauge the success of the workshop. The surveys asked about participants' background in collegial governance, perceptions of FDD effectiveness, motivation to participate in collegial governance, interest in further learning about governance, information obtained, and demographics. Results indicated that participants considered the FDD successful. They left with basic tools for participating effectively in faculty governance. Most reported improved attitudes about participating in faculty governance and agreed that the Faculty Senate was a step forward in university governance. Faculty members were optimistic about the Faculty Senate establishing a good working relationship with the university administration. Respondents mentioned the need for a culture of continuous improvement and ethics at the university. The faculty wanted to continue professional development in governance as well as in other areas. Two appendixes present a description of the feedback plan/design, instruments, data analysis and interpretation and limitations and detailed tabulations or analyses of quantitative data and transcripts or summaries of qualitative data.
