The institution fosters shared governance by maintaining reasonable workloads, supporting faculty development of governance skills, and rewarding participation in governance work.

1May 21, 2012 2:08 PMWorkload is OK. I see zero support for faculty development of governance skills, and less than zero on rewarding participation in governance work. It's negatively valued.
2May 19, 2012 7:47 PMWorkload in my College (2-3) is an issue; I have never been given any training in "governance skills"; I wonder what rewards are given for "participation in governance work: I suppose it counts toward the service part of a tenure or promotion case, but we all know how little that is too often worth.
3May 14, 2012 1:20 PMNo release time for committee chairs except for the SEC. Workload adjustments occur at the Dean's level, the Senate works above that level, so there needs to be some communication from the UHM administration to notify Deans/Directors that they have Chairs doing important work. I think the Senate would be more productive if the Chairs had release time.
4May 7, 2012 8:19 AMThere are no rewards for participating in governance. If anything, we are penalized during the promotion process.
5Apr 27, 2012 8:35 PMThis is not well discussed across the campus, some units are much better than others and it is hard to know what is really coming from the VCAA or from a zealous Dean.
