Shared Governance

Dr. Michael DeCesare

Dr. Michael DeCesare, AAUP Senior Program Officer,
Department of Academic Freedom, Tenure, and Governance

Higher education in Nevada is at a crossroads. In November, voters will decide whether to open the door for the most sweeping change to NSHE governance in the State's history, or maintain the status quo. Ideological groups, who have successfully managed to dismantle the foundations of governance in states like Florida and Texas, have trained their sights on Nevada. Regardless of the path we follow, shared governance may be threatened.

The Nevada Faculty Alliance is pleased to host Dr. Michael DeCesare, a nationally recognized expert on academic governance, in a Zoom town hall to provide an overview of AAUP-recommended standards of governance to help stakeholders understand how to protect shared governance in a changing environment. As a senior program officer in the American Association of University Professors' Department of Academic Freedom, Tenure, and Governance, Dr. DeCesare is an authority on the principles set forth more than five decades ago in the AAUP's Statement on Government of Colleges and Universities, which became a foundation of the American higher education system.

As part of AAUP's National Day of Action for Higher Education, the NFA invites all higher education stakeholders; faculty, students, campus and system administrators, regents, and lawmakers; to join us for a candid exploration of shared governance and examine its implementation in Nevada.
