Abstract
By analyzing the constitutional texts of several American universities, this paper finds that the mechanisms of American students’ participation in university governance including financial independence mechanism, personnel independence mechanism, information disclosure mechanism, information exchange mechanism, power balance mechanism and representative participation mechanism. The coordinated operation of the above-mentioned mechanisms strongly supports and guarantees the participation of American college students in University governance. Although American students have rich experience in university governance, there are still some problems, such as whether students enjoy decision-making power, the implementation effect is not obvious, and system model is not uniform. Thus, American students’ participation in university governance still further needs to be explored and practiced.
