Abstract/ Summary

This policy, agreed to by The Faculty Senate and administration, outlines the principles of shared governance at The University of Maine and is entered into freely by a faculty and an administration committed to a common vision of the mission of the University. As intended by this policy, the tenets of shared governance or collaborative decision-making are felt most strongly with regard to academic policies. The tenets of shared governance extend beyond oversight of academic policies to participative roles in the selection of administrators and faculty members, peer evaluation, and programmatic decisions. It is expected that faculty members will have a strong and current advisory role in fiscal matters, including budget development and resource allocation, as well as in strategic planning, evaluation of administrators, and in issues related to the University environment.
