The Impact of the Academic Revolution on Faculty Careers.
Light, D. W., Jr.; And Others
In this report a three-strand model for faculty careers is developed. These strands are the disciplinary, the institutional, and the external career of faculty. An attempt is made to determine the outcome of the "academic revolution" spoken of by Jencks and Reisman in their landmark study of that title. Some of the topics covered include faculty power, influence, and prestige, recruitment and promotion, academic markets, and initial socialization of faculty toward their discipline and their teaching role. The report evaluates the diverse studies on faculty careers and synthesizes them into a general framework. Rather than review the literature, however, it selects the most valuable information from all the research to provide as complete an analysis as possible of faculty careers. (Author/HS)
