Governance and assessment, account ability, and accreditation
Faculty participation in budgeting, financial exigency, or strategic planning
Principles, structures, and best practices of shared governance
The role of faculty in hiring, promotion, and tenure
Faculty governance, pedagogy, and curriculum
Governance and collective bargaining
The relationship of faculty governance to central administrations & legislatures
Motivating faculty to participate in shared governance
The role of contingent faculty
Departmental governance issues
