Academic Rewards in Higher Education.
Lewis, Darrel R., Ed.; Becker, William E., Jr., Ed.
A colloquium series in higher education at the University of Minnesota in the fall and winter of 1977-1978 examined the influence of academic reward systems on faculty behavior and academic productivity. These essays are the collective results of their findings and recommendations. Essays include: "Perspectives from Psychology: Financial Incentives Are Ineffective for Faculty" (Wilbert J. McKeachie); "Perspectives from Economics: The Economic Consequences of Changing Faculty Reward Structures" (William E. Becker, Jr.); "Perspectives from Sociology: Organizational Evaluation of Faculty Performances" (Sanford M. Dornbusch); "The Job Market for College Faculty" (Richard B. Freeman); "Conceptual Programs and Issues in Academic Labor Productivity" (Wayne R. Kirschling); "Planning and Evaluation Criteria for Allocating Departmental and Collegiate Resources in a University Setting" (Darrell R. Lewis and Theodore E. Kellogg); "Use of Student Evaluations in Faculty Personnel Decisions" (Kenneth O. Doyle, Jr.); "The Academic Reward Structure in American Higher Education" (Howard P. Tuckman); "Academic Compensation in Higher Education" (Howard R. Bowen); "Pervasive Sex Differences in the Academic Reward System: Scholarship, Marriage, and What Else?" (Helen S. Astin and Alan E. Bayer); "Pecuniary Rewards to Men and Women Faculty" (George E. Johnson and Frank P. Stafford); "Faculty Bargaining and Faculty Reward Systems" (James P. Begin); and "Adaptability to Change and Academic Productivity" (William E. Becker, Jr. and Darrell R. Lewis). The list of tables and figures provides information on such areas as equilibrium teaching, research output, enrollment pressures, sex differences, predictors of rank and salaries, effects of publication on promotion, and primary work activity of the faculty.
