Asset-Based or Burden-Based Views of Senior and Retired Faculty: How Values Translate into Culture and Shape Practice and Policies
Kezar, Adrianna
New Directions for Higher Education, n182 p57-67 Sum 2018
This chapter reviews discourses about "senior" and retired faculty. These discourses suggest a deficit or burden-based view that shapes the values and practices of faculty and department chairs. Yet retired faculty can be valuable resources and help with teaching, service, and research. A process for changing departmental views to create an asset-based culture that assists in the adoption of favorable retirement policies and programs is provided.
