  • AAUP Amicus Brief About the Stanford V. Roche Case | AAUP
    Equity Week Intellectual Property at Risk AAUP IP Policy CAUT IP Policies IP Legislation IP Fact Sheets IP Amicus Brief IP Essays One Faculty Public Employees and Higher Ed Under Fire Speak Up Speak Out Protect the Faculty Voice Find Chapters Conferences Start a Chapter AAUP Amicus Brief About the Stanford V Roche Case The US Supreme Court s 2011 Stanford v Roche decision is the single most important recent legal decision addressing faculty patent rights We place here the full text of the AAUP s successful brief pdf submitted as part of that case As our intellectual property report points out the Stanford v Roche decision opens the door for faculties and their governing bodies to press for a return to the far stronger faculty inventor rights that led the development of new technology in the decades prior to the passage of the Bayh Dole Act and for more visionary shared governance systems around IP and invention management The Supreme Court s ruling strongly bolsters the AAUP position that faculty should be free to control the disposition of their scholarship without interference by university IP administrators In the wake of the 1980 Bayh Dole Act universities began to assert patent ownership that had historically been reserved for faculty inventors themselves They often argued that Bayh Dole effectively mandated that they do so Stanford v Roche decisively invalidated those arguments but as some predicted many universities took action in effect designed to nullify the Supreme Court decision University IP policies thus began to take a further turn for the worse in the 2011 2012 academic year This section of the web site as a whole is intended to urge reconsideration of current university IP policies and to assist efforts to organize activism to enshrine the Stanford v Roche decision in

  • Institutional Accreditation: A Call for Greater Faculty Involvement | AAUP
    available online at the Web site of each regional accrediting agency see sidebar and it has generally been our experience that administrators welcome the support faculty members can provide with this labor intensive task Faculty members often ask how they can add value to what may seem to be primarily an administrative function Yet issues such as curricular design and effec tiveness assessment of students academic performance student retention and graduation rates quality of aca demic advising and appropriateness of cocurricular activities are central to the self study Because of their training and direct contact with students faculty members are in the best position to provide analyses of these issues And they possess the research and analytical skills not only to identify deficiencies in processes and outcomes but also to develop methods for improvement 2 Use a faculty committee in the campus gover nance structure the AAUP chapter or the commit tee and chapter jointly as an accreditation resource A fundamental service that a faculty body can perform especially during the self study process is to acquaint the campus community with the principles and stan dards set forth in the AAUP s 1968 statement The Role of the Faculty in the Accrediting of Colleges and Universities The principles include the following the self study should be a cooperative effort involving administrators and faculty institutions should encour age faculty participation and the evaluation of academ ic programs and conditions affecting academic freedom tenure faculty governance and faculty status and morale should be largely the responsibility of faculty members Among the recommended standards for institutions are that the majority of the self study com mittee should consist of faculty and should be respon sible to the faculty as a whole that the self study should include descriptions of circumstances affecting a cademic freedom and tenure the faculty role in gover nance and faculty status and morale that the self study should be submitted to the entire faculty for possible amendment before being submitted to the accreditor that faculty representatives should be available to meet with the visiting committee to discuss questions of fac ulty concern and that the visiting team s report should be distributed to the entire faculty A faculty committee in the campus governance structure the AAUP chapter or the committee and chapter together should do what can be done to ensure that the institution observes these standards when it undergoes an accreditation review For faculty members to engage actively in accredita tion they must also be aware of the timeline of relevant activities and events that constitute the process A faculty body can facilitate this awareness by sending out a memorandum or posting an announcement on its Web site containing that timeline thereby enabling campus members to be informed of the deadlines that must be met Additionally a faculty body s Web site can serve the campus community by posting links to essential sources of information about regional accreditation Besides the accreditation page on the Association s Web site
