Resource Handbook on Manpower Flexibility Options in Ontario Universities.
Ayre, David, Ed.; And Others
Manpower flexibility options in Ontario universities during times of financial restraint are discussed in this handbook, which resulted from a seminar that examined: (1) various approaches to problems related to anticipated academic staff reduction; (2) issues associated with policy development and implementation; and (3) establishing an informal network of Ontario university individuals currently interested in and/or knowledgeable about manpower flexibility options. Areas examined are: early retirement, reduced workload, shared workload, retraining/transfers, and exchanges. Supplementary materials include: "Review" (M. von Zur-Muehlen); "Academic Careers in a Time of Recession" (J. S. Small); "Helping Professors Grow" (S. K. Bailey); "Changing Retirement" (Corwin et al.); "Early Retirement" (McGill University); "Teaching Staff Report" (Trent University); "Faculty Retraining in Four States" (C. B. Neff); "1982 Committee Academic Career Planning" (Carleton University); "Are Professors Recyclable?" (R. S. Wilson); "Presidential Committee Report--Faculty Development" (University of Western Ontario); and "Retirement and Pension" (E. D. Maher). The Handbook, to be revised periodically, is designed to be of use to other institutions in responding to the need for manpower flexibility. (LC)
