Public Perceptions of Universities and Faculty.
Berube, Michael
Academe, v82 n4 p10-17 Jul-Aug 1996
A discussion of public attitudes toward higher education and faculty looks at deepening public distrust of the professoriate and tenure, ambivalence about college teaching as a professional pursuit, and the role of public relations efforts to win support within constituencies. Broader definitions of teaching and service, and more substantial ways of rewarding them in all forms, are called for. (MSE)
