Abstract: The major purpose of this study was to determine the relationship between the perceived and the preferred importance of institutional goals and between the perceived and the preferred amount of influence of the faculty in university governance, according to the perceptions of faculty members at an historically black state university. A related purpose was to determine whether length of service at the institution affected faculty members' perceptions of goal congruence and of faculty influence congruence. A questionnaire was developed and was used to collect data. The questionnaire was administered to 93 full-time faculty member at an historically black state university in North Carolina. Usable responses were received from 80 respondents, for an 86 percent response rate. Using a five-point Likert scale, respondents rated each goal and each influence statement twice. Their first racing indicated what "is" the case, the perceived rating. Their second rating indicated what "should be" the case, the preferred rating.
