The questions in this survey are designed to allow for the immediate evaluation of the state of shared government at institutions of higher education. It is hoped that an institution will use these questions to prepare assessment reports for external reviews as well as to evaluate and enhance the institutional system of shared governance.
The questions are largely drawn from a short monograph by Keetjie Ramo entitled Assessing the Faculty's Role in Shared Governance: Implications of AAUP Standards(1998). Each question can be answered with a "yes" or "no." When areas for concern are identified by a preponderance of "no" answers, Ramo (1998) and the Redbook (2001) should be consulted extensively as a means of improving the practice of shared governance.
