This essay discusses the past year's student protests and argues that some of the targets of the protests are misdirected. For example, protests by students of the central administration for a non-diverse faculty have missed the point that the faculty is responsible for selecting faculty candidates. This essay also discusses some failings of certain shared governance models and recommends a more inclusive shared governance system.
