Personnel Administration in Higher Education. Handbook of Faculty and Staff Personnel Practices.
Fortunato, Ray T.; Waddell, D. Geneva
Ways to develop and implement personnel policies and procedures are described that should prevent problems from becoming crises in higher education institutions. Based on the authors' more than 40 years of combined experience in higher education personnel administration, this handbook offers a detailed guide to the intricacies of faculty and staff personnel management in all sizes and types of institutions, from community colleges to research universities.
