Art and Politics of Academic Governance: Relations Among Boards, Presidents, and Facultyby Kenneth P Mortimer, Colleen O'Brien Sathre, Colleen O'Brien Sathre
Pub. Date: 04/28/2005
Publisher: ABC-CLIO, Incorporated
Using case studies and relevant literature, this book illustrates the challenges to legitimate, Shared-governance domains when the routine of the academy is forced to deal with big issues, often brought on by external forces. Mortimer and Sathre have gone beyond a discussion of faculty/administrative behavior by focusing on what happens when the legitimate governance claims of faculty, trustees, and presidents clash. They place these relationships in the broader context of internal institutional governance and analyze the dynamics that unfold when advocacy trumps collegiality. The book closes with a defense of shared governance and offers observations and practical suggestions about how the academy can share authority effectively and further achieve its mission.
