Summary

This report analyzes the political structure of the Academic Senate at the University of California, Berkeley. A review of the literature on educational politics is followed by a chapter explaining the history, organization, and "actions in time of crisis" of the Academic Senate. In Chapter 3, the characteristics of a representative sample of Berkeley faculty are compared with those of Senate committee members, committee chairman, and selected members of other committees. Chapter 4 examines some of the informal aspects of relationships among faculty members serving in the Academic Senate. Chapter 5 describes the formal and informal operation of the Budget Committee, the Committee on Academic Planning, the Committee on Educational Policy, and the Committee on Courses of Instruction. Chapter 6 presents observations and conclusions on decision-making patterns of various faculty committees. It also describes recent attempts by the Senate to coordinate the activities of its committees and to maintain adequate liaison with the administration. The final chapter presents discussion and conclusions regarding the effects of various crises on the Senate, the characteristics of the faculty ruling elite, and a summary of power and authority in Senate committees.
