The Faculty Voice in Missouri
St. Louis, Missouri
November 10, 2012
At Missouri Southern State University, the faculty voted no confidence in their president, and at the University of Missouri, the president admitted, “guilty as charged” to closing the press without faculty input. Across the state, budget cuts have prompted administrations to make decisions without consulting the faculty. The American Association of University Professors maintains that the faculty must play a key role in all major decisions at their institutions. This one-day workshop will answer your questions about how to increase effective faculty involvement at your institutions. Like a mini version of the AAUP’s Summer Institute, it will feature sessions on handbooks, faculty senates, shared governance, governing boards, intellectual property, and academic freedom—and it will also provide financial analyses of your home institutions that will give you the rationale for challenging top-down decisions to cut programs and dismiss faculty.
