The professors have greater security than do the administrators or students. They have the political power to mold the institutional processes to meet their needs. Rarely do the students perceive the ways in which they might exercises the potential power which they could grasp. Usually the administrators sympathize with the professors' need more than with the students' needs. Thus professors tend to be accountable to those who sympathize with their needs' rather than to powerful persons sympathetic to students' needs. When accountability and power are on the side of the professors' needs the professors' tend to be met. Professors have a need to have their graduate school preparation affirmed. It would be difficult to admit that the prime years of one's life were wasted or spent worshiping false gods. Thus professors need to give lectures which affirm the values introjected during graduate school. Professors need to have students and peers affirm the importance of the content of those lectures, even if the content is irrelevant to students. Organization, clarity, logic, sophistication, and the like are to be affirmed --- as they were affirmed in graduate school days. Professors have a need to be protected from the threats of experiences which cannot be understood and dealt with in exclusively cognitive ways. Most professors have so specialized as to be threatened by genuinely intimate personal relationships. They need the protection of well defined roles and relationships. As need be roles can be redefined by formal procedure, but spontaneous personal relationships and feelings cannot be dealt with in cognitive ways with any sense of security. Professors have learned that security is to be found in formal procedures and they need to be protected from informal procedures. Professors need help in protecting their collusions. They appreciate all the help that their best students can give them, and with eagerness help their students learn how to protect the basic professional collusions. Such help is most effectively offered in the context of technical training in the essential skills which are basic to the survival of the profession. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
