LETTERS TO THE DAILY
Lii school faculty: A poor record

To the Daily:
IN RESPONSE TO R obe r t
Kraftowitz's article (Daily, Dec.
6) concerning the likely defeat
of a proposal for a student-fa-
culty assembly to govern the Li-
terary College.:
.Students should not have to
justify their right to partici-
pate fnr decisions concerning
their own education. On the oth-
er hand, on the basis of t h e
4 faculty's past performance, legi-
timate <question can be raised as
to whether the faculty should
contitiue to be involved in the
college's decision-making pro-
cess.
Let us review several k e y
Smeasures of the faculty's per-
fornmance:
(1). Faculty often can not get
a quorum at their smeetings. At
last Monday's regular monthly
nieeting, for example, less than
90 faculty members were pre-
sent out of approximately 1,000.

If I am not mistaken .in my
identifications, major critics of
the governance proposal such as
(Prof.) Gardner Ackley wer'
notably absent.
2) The college is currently
suffering from a crisis in man-
agement. Freshmen and sopho-
mnores in particular may have
been rather distraught w h e n
they found that towards the end
of preclassification, over 100
courses were closed, including
all the introductory courses in
key departments such as psy-
chology. The college has been
unable to allocate resources so
as to meet basic student ne'eds.
3) One of the faculty's main
responsibilities is to insure that
the Literary College gets its fair
share of the total University
budget. At the Monday meeting,
the point was made that the col-
lege is severely underfunded re-
lative to other units in the Uni-
versity. The faculty has done
an inadequate job of repre-

senting
lege in
within
tion.

the interests of the col-
the struggle for dollars
the central administra-

4) the crisis in funds for the
college is further aggravated be-
cause many of the expenditures
are so inefficient. In particul-
ar, the faculty for years have
debated the issue of whether the
current distribution and lang-
uage requirements are a neces-
sary part of a liberal arts die-
gree. But they have failed to
ever deal with the fact that the
current requirements regard-
less of whether they are justi-
fied in theory in practice sim-
ply do not meet their goals,.
Courses students take to fulfill
tlese requirements are almost
always unsatisfactory. Money on
these courses has often b e e n
completely wasted.
Now on the basis of these
criticisms and others I do not
seriously mean to suggest that
faculty should be eliminated from

the governance process entirely.
Faculty have valuable experience
to contribute on almost every
educational interest. Students
understand this, and for their
own benefit always want to take
advantage of what the faculty
can contribute,
But what I do mean to argue
is that faculty ought to think
twice about their own perform-
ance as decision makers before
they ask students to be satis-
fied with the status quo on gov-
ernance. Students will never be
satisfied with a governanlce pro-
cedure where faculty exercise
power on the basis of legal au-
thority alone, and the faculty's
record so far suggests little other
basis for trust.
