    Introduction to drake university

    One critical consideration as we

    think about the future is that we begin

    with a Drake University culture that

    includes the following major

    characteristics.


    Introduction to drake university

    Shared Governance

    Faculty Senate Powers (Academic Charter)

    Establish educational policies

    Enact academic regulations

    Recommend special action to President & Board

    Establish policies concerning extracurricular

    policies

    5. Establish standing and ad hoc committees


    Introduction to drake university

    Shared Governance: Academic Charter

    Appendix F

    (Joint Statement on Government of Colleges & Universities)

    The faculty has primary responsibility for such

    fundamental areas as curriculum, subject matter

    and methods of instruction, research, faculty status,

    and those aspects of student life which relate to

    the educational process.


    Introduction to drake university

    Unit Autonomy is Highly Valued

    The organizational structure is decentralized

    with a long history of local autonomy


    Introduction to drake university

    Participatory Decision-Making

    Faculty and staff members as well as students

    are involved in decision-making.


    Introduction to drake university

    Value Excellence

    There is great pride in our reputation for

    academic excellence


    Introduction to drake university

    Openness

    Students, faculty, and staff members have

    direct access to administrative leaders.

    Information is widely shared


    Introduction to drake university

    Generally Embrace Change

    Significant change has occurred at Drake

    University during the past 10 years.

    Most of that change is the consequence of

    participatory decision-making and building

    faculty and staff support.


    Introduction to drake university

    Caveat

    There are still barriers to crossing traditional

    organizational lines.


    Introduction to drake university

    Challenge

    Drake University has an organizational structure

    and culture similar to that found at most other

    institutions of higher education. Is the

    organizational structure best suited for the university

    imagined in Drake University: Vision 2025?
