PROFESSOR LEIGHTON. OF OHIO
STATE URGES EXTENSION
OF DUTIES
Urging increased participation by
university faculties in the determina-
tion of educational policies, Prof.
Joseph A. Leighton, of Ohio State uni-
versity, in his address on "The Func-
tion of the Faculty in the Adminis-
tration of a University," before the in-
augural session yesterday morning,
found ultimate justification for facul-
ty self-government in that it consists
of a body of competent experts "whose
will are dedicated to social service."
"At present, in most cases, the legal
administrative powers of faculties are
confined to the governing of curricula
and student activities," he said. "In
practice, faculties exercise much larg-
er administrative functions. They par-
ticipate to a considerable exten.. i.. th
determination of educational policiez,
in the choice of their own membership,
in the choice of Deans, Presidents, and
even in the determination of salary
scales. The practices which prevail in
these regards in the better institutions
should be regularized by definite pro-
visions in the constitution and by-laws
of Universities.
"Specifically, the faculty should have
an Increased participation in the de-
termination of educational policies, in
the selection of new members of its
own body, in the nomination of Deans
and President, and indirectly, through
Deans and President, in the determina-
tion of the budget. Provision should
be made for the exchange of views be-
tween the governing board and the
faculty on matters of educational
policy. The right of the faculty to
have a voice in the nomination of its
administrative officers should be rec-
ognized. The faculty should partici-
pate in the making of the budget. But
the governing board should continue
to have final voice in the election-and
