Abstract
In recent years, the constantly occurring phenomenon that behavior of university faculty members departs from their roles, such as academic misconduct and negligence in undergraduate teaching, directly influences the social reputation and healthy development of universities in China. Within this context, this study examines the two job attributes of university faculty, namely teaching and research, which are brought into the framework of administrative governance, and analyzes the institutional causes of the behavior mentioned above. The study shows that in Chinese colleges and universities, teaching and research are in contradiction with administrative governance. As for the lack of self-discipline mechanism, faculty members' academic misconduct and negligence in undergraduate teaching are their rational individual behavior. Thus recommendations for governing their rational behavior, particularly through innovating in governance model and reinforcing self-discipline mechanism, are provided.
