College and university presidents are central figures in the hierarchy of American postsecondary institutions. As the institution's chief executive officer and primary representative (Balderston, 1990 presidents must foster and maintain numerous relationships with a variety of institutional constituencies. The professoriate is a vital institutional constituency that promotes the effectiveness and legitimacy of the academe presidency. A lack of trust between the president and the professoriate can denigrate the ability of the president to lead and diminish the efficacy of the institution as a whole
The professoriate plays an important role in the governance structure of American postsecondary institutions. The lack of empirical focus on the dyadic relationship between academe presidents and higher education faculty has exacerbated the ambiguity of the academe president's roles and the terms that dictate the legitimacy of the presidency. Due to the importance of the president-faculty relationship, this study examined a national sample of faculty senate members at research universities--very, high, research universities--high, and doctoral/research universities to identify their perceptions of appropriate and inappropriate behavior of academe presidents
The purpose of this study focused on the norms the professoriate espouses regarding the role performance of academe presidents. Additionally, this study examined the influences of the institutional and individual characteristics of the faculty senate members who participated in the study. Research results identified eight inviolable and Five admonitory normative structures for college and university presidents as espoused by the faculty. The findings also concluded that the institutional characteristics (i.e., institutional control type and institutional classification) and individual faculty senate member characteristics do espouse a level of influence on the degree of indignation register on various normative patterns
