Faculty Community Service: At the Intersection of Campus and Community
Harris, Nathan
New Directions for Higher Education, n143 p101-108 Fall 2008
The Council of Graduate Schools' description of the faculty role differentiates several kinds of faculty service: "Service in the context of academia generally refers to service to the institution, the external community, and the larger academic community." Within these categories, the faculty role toward the external community has taken on a new prominence, yet it remains a marginal activity at many campuses. This article describes that role and the issues related to it, identifying ways in which faculty community service benefits faculty, campuses, and communities and suggesting directions that institutions can take to support faculty community service.
