Summary

This study examined trends and issues in the involvement of college faculty in institutional governance between 1994 and 1997. The study reviewed 132 issues of "The Chronicle of Higher Education" published during this period to identify any article or news report related to faculty involvement in governance. These topics included faculty support for administrative bodies, faculty strikes, faculty involvement in workload disagreements, planning, and support (or lack thereof) for administrative decision making. This report provides an analysis of 26 articles on a year-by-year basis. Findings indicate that faculty are most often dissatisfied with issues involving the appropriation of power, including perceived undermining of faculty trust or the governance system, efforts to take away faculty rights to participate in decision making, or restructuring plans that appear to give too much power to administrators. Four recommendations are offered: (1) faculty and administrators must clarify areas of separate and shared governance; (2) institutions should work to organize the intent and efforts of faculty governance units; (3) both administrators and faculty governance units must work to improve involvement in decision making; and (4) all parties must work to resolve problems facing higher education. A list of the reviewed articles is attached. (Contains 16 references.) (DB)
