Acceptance of New and Junior Faculty into Four-Year Institutions of Higher Education: An Annotated Bibliography.
Hamilton, Karen S.
This annotated bibliography offers summaries and evaluations of 23 research reports originally published from 1968 through 1995 concerning the status, acceptance, and professional development of new and junior faculty at institutions of higher education. Studies report on the sources of stress faced by new faculty, sources of aid, and programs which have been shown to improve professional and personal well-being of new and junior faculty. Overall analysis finds that new faculty members experience significant job-related stress; they often suffer from low self-esteem about their teaching and writing, and experience loneliness and limited collegial support. Institutional commitments and support from the top down are encouraged to help new faculty adjust and be successful. (DB)
