Abstract

ABSTRACT

The purpose of this paper is to analyze what some private universities are doing in the area of mediation and other alternative ways of solving faculty complaints – what some term “alternative dispute resolution.” Special attention will be given to one of the most important ethical issues in this area at the operating level of individual universities – the due process procedures with respect to the processing of the grievances of individual faculty members in nonunionized colleges. The paper concludes with recommendations for university administrators and faculty senates, as well as recommendations for future research.
