The Latent Organizational Functions of the Academic Senate: Why Senates Do Not Work but Will Not Go Away.
Birnbaum, Robert
New Directions for Higher Education, n75 p7-25 Fall 1991
This discussion of faculty senates examines roles senates are presumed to and actually play in college governance within four organizational models: bureaucratic, collegial, political, or symbolic. It is concluded that any changes must be undertaken carefully so as not to disturb either manifest or latent organizational functions. (MSE)
