This post is a bit of shameless self promotion, but since many of you that read this are in higher ed I thought you’d appreciate my post, Campuses Need Collaborative Decision-making More than Shared Governance, on the AAUP Academe blog. Feel free to click the link, leave a comment, and share with friends. A highlight:
In “Exactly what is ‘Shared Governance’” Gary Olson offers, “The key to genuine shared governance is broad and unending communication. When various groups of people are kept in the loop and understand what developments are occurring within the university, and when they are invited to participate as true partners, the institution prospers.” I argue further that this is more than shared governance and that there are four key hierarchical leadership aspects that are needed to ensure this collaborative partnership: shared governance, transparency, openness, and collaboration.
Back to data and graphs on Thursday.
