Webinar: Shared Governance During a Crisis

Financial exigency, force majeure, program cuts, reduction in force—these are the challenges that faculty governance faces during the COVID-19 pandemic. Under pressure, administrations may seek to minimize the faculty role in making key decisions about these matters in which faculty should have primary responsibility. This session will help you understand the AAUP’s recommended standards for faculty governance. We will also review relevant research highlighting the standard roles that faculty play throughout US higher education.
