The Struggle For Faculty Governance: Its Ethical, Social, and Pedagogical Significance
As President of a university chapter of the American Association of University Professors, I have been asked variants of the same question: "What stake does the community have in university faculties' struggles against administration efforts to undermine our roles in university governance, our autonomy in the classroom, and our professional status?" On two occasions, this question was framed from the perspective of workers: "What is the stake for blue-collar workers and their families in these issues?" On the third occasion, the question was framed from the perspective of the social group with which we share the classroom on a daily basis: "What is the stake for university students?"
