Some Branches Were More Equal Than Others

Most American colleges and universities profess commitment to the principles of shared governance, but the degree to which those ideals are actually applied varies considerably from institution to institution. While serving two terms as the chair of the Faculty Assembly of the University of North Carolina (the representative body that brings together faculty delegates from the university's sixteen campuses), this author discovered that, although shared governance was thriving on most of the campuses, it was considerably less robust at some of the smaller schools in the system. Following a survey of system campuses, the Faculty Assembly formulated a statement on the standards of shared governance that were expected to be in place at all sixteen locations. This document, "Standards of Shared Governance" is included at the end of this paper. (Contains 1 endnote.)
