Abstract

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.

Keywords: Shared Governance, Diversity, Student Protests, Higher Education, Faculty Governance, Central Administration
