Faculty Retirement: Loss or Opportunity?
Clery, Suzanne; Lee, John
NEA Higher Education Research Center Update, v7 n5 Dec 2001
This research update uses the U.S. Department of Education's National Survey of Postsecondary Faculty to analyze faculty retirement and its effects. It presents data regarding retirement and institution type, field of teaching, gender, union status, plans for retirement, and faculty relocation. It concludes that pending retirement does not appear to pose a threat of an overwhelming loss of talent in higher education, although the loss will be more noticeable in some fields and institutions.
