Dear Faculty Association Member,
The Council of UC Faculty Associations (CUCFA) is working to assess recent challenges to UC faculty governance. Please write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and answer YES, NO, or I DON’T KNOW to the first 2 questions.
1. Have faculty at your UC participated adequately in searches for administrative positions of Dean or above?
2. Do you find that important academic decisions that used to or should be the provenance of faculty at your UC (from hiring to school restructuring and policies) are being made or impinged upon by administrators?
3. Overall, what grade would you give to ‘shared governance’ at your UC over the last 3 years?
If you know of specific instances of good or bad shared governance practices at your UC, please fill out, anonymously or not, in part or more fully, our Survey on UC Governance available at:
You are also welcome to contact the CUCFA subcommittee on governance.
Thank you for your help.
