According to the Tulsa World, Mart Green, Oklahoma City businessman who has offered $70 million to bail Oral Roberts University out of it’s financial problems is proposing a plan that would open up leadership to a more contemporary style of governance. The World reports, “Green’s statement says: “The proposal will focus on accepted twenty-first century shared governance principles. To help develop this proposal, the Green family has retained several nationally renowned experts in Christian higher education.” The American Federation of Teachers describes shared governance as an administrative model “under which college faculty and staff participate in significant decisions concerning the operation of their institutions.” Right now, oddly enough, ORU’s board of regents has no representation by any current faculty or staff members.
