Will Maricopa Community College Have A Hostile Takeover?

The American Association of University Professors (AAUP) seems to think so. “The AAUP today wrote to the governing board of the Maricopa Community College District in Arizona to convey our concern over apparent departures from generally accepted principles of academic governance,” Hans-Joerg Tiede wrote on the academe blog maintained by the AAUP. The matter stems from a February resolution of the governing board that terminated a “meet-and-confer” provision of the faculty policy manual and ordered the creation of a new manual that would severely limit the participation of the faculty in institutional governance.
