How-to and Success Stories and Policies

The pieces below were written by faculty who have spearheaded successful efforts to amend policies on their campuses in order to protect the right of faculty to participate in shared governance.  We have also compiled a summary of policies passed at public institutions and organizations in response to post-Garcetti threats to academic freedom and shared governance; we hope the chart below is useful in your efforts to implement similar language.  See also the end of the subcommittee’s report  (.pdf) or executive summary for suggested policy language.
