faculty voice


Johns Hopkins University Press is publishing a book titled – What Ever Happened to the Faculty? Drift and Decision in Higher Education (to be released Oct. 2006).

Mary Burgan surveys the deterioration of faculty influence in higher education. From campus planning, curriculum, and instructional technology to governance, pedagogy, and academic freedom, she urges far greater consideration for the perspective of the faculty.

Now there’s something we can all get behind. (I am still waiting to get on that campus architectural planning committee.)

Frankly, at this stage in my career I am happy to concentrate on my research and teaching-related duties, committee work can be rather tedious and mind-numbing.

  1. Hmmm, could be why faculty governance is on the decline. No one really wants to do it. I have only been doing this for 25 years and I see dramatic decline in the input of faculty. We have become employees, not professionals in the true sense of the word.
