The investigating committee concludes that current conditions for academic governance are truly deplorable. Only in the matter of detailed course content has the Lindenwood College faculty retained its traditional role. If there is any other aspect of faculty involvement touched on in the Statement on Government where faculty members at Lindenwood College have anything more than a token role, this investigating committee has failed to detect it..
