Faculty and Student Affairs Collaboration in the Corporate University
Harrison, Laura M.
Journal of College and Character, v14 n4 p365-371 Nov 2013
Faculty, student affairs professionals, and most importantly, students, are paying the price as institutions of higher education increasingly operate in a top-down manner with an over-emphasis on the bottom line. The corporatization of higher education creates lopsided reward (and punishment) systems for faculty, unreasonably stressful environments for student affairs professionals already straining to do more with less as substantive resources for students continue to decline, and student debt increases. This article argues for an invigoration of the faculty-student affairs collaboration discourse through the lens of critical management studies, a framework for examining power relationships in organizations.
