The Generosity of an Urban Professoriate: Understanding Faculty as Donors and Academic Citizens
Shaker, Genevieve G.
Metropolitan Universities, v23 n3 p5-25 Mar 2013
Although faculties are often portrayed as institutionally uninvolved, evidence exists that many of them are actually academic citizens who contribute beyond requirements and expectations. Using a phenomenological approach to examine major giving by faculty and their academic citizenship at an urban university, this study of limited sample size shows that faculty citizenship was grounded by philanthropic values such as those that inspired financial giving among the participants.
