Understanding Governance on Your Campus

By Jason B. Jones

The big story this week in higher education is obviously at UVA, where the Board of Visitors is apparently engaged in an experiment to see how quickly a great university can be destroyed. The Board’s actions violate the most basic conventions of university governance so drastically that the AAUP even voted to deplore them before the faculty’s emergency meeting on Sunday. The situation is so appalling that even a William & Mary alum can’t muster any schadenfreude. (Full credit to the university’s faculty and staff for their response, however.)
