Fitzgerald, Sallyanne H.
WPA: Writing Program Administration, v21 n2-3 p101-05 Spr 1998
Describes frictions inherent in the decision-making process at a California community college, where shared governance is both clearly defined and mandated. Discusses responsibility versus consultation and offers two successful examples (regarding the writing center and the basic writing program) in which faculty were involved in the decision and part of the solution.
