The article discusses issues regarding school governance. Conflicts that arise among students, faculty, school administrators and school governing board are continuously increasing putting deans of each school in the middle of the parties involved. Schools could not come up with a solution for this disenfranchisement because the students, faculty and administrators do not want to cooperate. For this reason, the American Association for Higher Education established the Campus Governance Program. This program aims to act as a research program to solve the governance problem in certain campuses advising parties involved to work on the facts they have and not to use overgeneralization.
