Challenges for Governance: A National Report
Center for Higher Education Policy Analysis, University of Southern California
This monograph presents the results of a survey of nearly 3,800 faculty and provosts nationwide in over 750 higher education institutions that addressed the ways faculty participate in governance, the degree and effectiveness of that participation, and faculty attitudes toward it. The report first describes the survey sample and response rate. Next, it presents survey results on the venues for faculty participation, the areas in which faculty have the strongest influence, the nature of faculty authority, attitudes toward shared governance, and the effectiveness of specific venues for expressing faculty views. Finally, it summarizes the main findings and discusses their implications for improving institutional governance. (Contains 10 tables and 2 figures.)
