A "Step-Back" Is Actually a "Step-Forward" When Attempting to Make the Transition from Administrator to Faculty within the Canadian College Environment
Jacobs, Steven
College Quarterly, v18 n4 Fall 2015
Many college faculty have sought and secured administrative positions. This type of transition is not uncommon. What is uncommon, however, is the transition back from an administrative position to a faculty position within Canadian colleges. There are many barriers and obstacles to this type of role transition which make it very difficult to do. I believe this to be extremely unfortunate because this type of role transition would be of benefit to all stakeholders--faculty, administration, support staff, and ultimately the persons we aim to serve in colleges: our students.
