Managing in a Culture of Debate: Enhancing Administrative Effectiveness through Procedural Fairness
Moshavi, Dan; Standifird, Stephen
Journal of Academic Administration in Higher Education, v13 n1 p1-6 Spr 2017
The contestability of ideas is at the heart of a healthy academic institution. As a result, administrators face the challenge of making and implementing difficult decisions in an environment that is designed to explicitly create thoughtful discord. We argue that procedural fairness--explaining how and why important decisions are made--is an important tool for academic administrators to utilize in order to successfully manage in this arena. We present four brief cases that showcase the benefits of utilizing procedural fairness and the costs of ignoring it.
