DiRamio, David; Theroux, Ryan; Guarino, Anthony J.
Innovative Higher Education, v34 n3 p149-159 Aug 2009
Using network analysis we investigated faculty hiring at 21 U. S. News top-ranked programs in higher education administration. Our research questions were as follows. Do top programs hire from each other? Are faculty from the "outside" finding positions at top programs? Mixed results hint at implications for the "health" of the hiring network. Closed systems in higher education may produce unintended consequences as graduate programs look to expand into new global markets.
