Education in Rural Australia, v12 n1 p43-50 2002
A survey of 85 rural and metro academics at two Australian universities found that rural faculty experienced more autonomy, cross-disciplinary stimulation, and connection to community. Rural disadvantages included professional isolation, fewer opportunities for research and advancement, and metropolitan management structures. Most of those with rural academia experience considered it a potential lifelong career. (Contains 20 references.) (TD)
