(p.145) 5 Faculty Governance at the University of Southern California
The Imperial University

This chapter examines the importance of faculty governance and the price it exacts—either by ignoring it or by fighting for it. It focuses on the struggle over the University of South Carolina’s (USC) tenure process. It discusses the unprecedented efforts of USC to improve its academic standing. It examines in detail how such dynamics have played out in the tenures process and how USC has responded to faculty efforts to challenge its practices. The issues of “transparency” and “privacy” are important because USC claims them as values but they are actually tools of dominion. Privacy/transparency can be seen as objects of a class struggle between faculty and administrators. USC has actively sought and continues to seek racial/ethnic and gender diversity.

Keywords:   faculty governance, University of South Carolina, tenure process, academic, transparency, privacy, faculty, administrators, gender diversity
