"Putting in Your Time": Faculty Experiences in the Process of Promotion to Professor
Gardner, Susan K.; Blackstone, Amy
Innovative Higher Education, v38 n5 p411-425 Nov 2013
The rank of professor or "full" professor represents the highest status possible for faculty members, and it is generally gained by attaining professional expertise and a national or international reputation. Beyond this, however, little is known about these individuals or the promotion process at this level. In this qualitative study of 10 faculty members at one research university in the United States, we sought to understand the experiences of individuals who had sought promotion to full professor. Through a socialization lens, we found that issues of time, a lack of clarity, and gender disparity were concerns for these faculty members.
