Interview with Gary A. Berg, dean of extended education at California State University Channel Islands, who, according to this article, "eceived extensive access to University of Phoenix administrators and faculty members." Observes Berg, "what a tenured faculty member from a traditional university would notice most is their lessened influence... here is nothing like a faculty senate. Faculty members at the University of Phoenix are completely and very intentionally left out of operational decisions." The future represented by the University of Phoenix - "increased use of part-time faculty, intensive formats, standardization, distributed and distance learning formats, an emphasis on assessment" - is also being seen at traditional institutions.
