Academic freedom can’t flourish on any campus unless it is operationalized through shared governance. Increasingly, faculty are being squeezed out of our role in the “joint effort” (with governing boards and executive administrations) of governing the college or university -- which in turn requires faculty involvement to varying degrees in “personnel decisions, selection of administrators, preparation of the budget, and determination of educational policies.” That means that shared governance isn’t just about serving on promotion & tenure committees or various search committees -- it’s really about the roles we must play in ensuring that our institutions of higher education continue to produce and disseminate knowledge for the common good.
