How to Evaluate a Faculty Governance Structure
Cordes, John W.; Dunbar, David; Gingerich, Jeff
Academe, v99 n3 p34-39 May-Jun 2013
During the 2010-11 academic year, Cabrini College began an evaluation of a faculty governance structure that had been implemented in fall 2007. The processes involved might serve as a roadmap for faculty members and administrators at other institutions who seek to understand the strengths and weaknesses of their governance model and improve shared leadership on campus. Cabrini is a Roman Catholic liberal arts college with approximately 1,300 undergraduates and 1,500 graduate students. At the time of the new governance structure's implementation, the college had sixty-four full-time faculty members. This number had increased to seventy-five by 2012. The authors' evaluation process itself was an experiment in shared governance. It demonstrates an approach to making shared governance work.
