Career Roles of Research University Faculty.
Smart, John C.
This study investigated variations in the relationship between age strata and career roles of faculty affiliated with eight distinctive clusters of academic disciplines in major research universities. The sample consisted of over 10,000 faculty who responded to a recent American Council on Education survey. The results demonstrated wide variation in the relationship between age and career roles of faculty in the discipline clusters, and raise serious questions regarding several commonly assumed trends in the career roles of faculty during various stages of their tenure in the academic community.
