The Faculty of the Future: Leaner, Meaner, More Innovative, Less Secure
Chronicle of Higher Education, v55 n41 pB24 Jul 2009
The faculty workplace has changed significantly in the last 20 years: More women, minority professors, and adjuncts have joined the professoriate. Information technology has led to new opportunities and expectations. The economic crisis has complicated long-term planning for scholars and institutions alike. Seven scholars from several fields and generations are asked how they think the academic workplace--and, in particular, the job satisfaction and expectations of a faculty career--will change over the next 20 years. This article presents perceptions from Marc Bousquet, Timothy Carmody, Anthony T. Grafton, Joseph C. Hermanowicz, Evelyn Hu-DeHart, Peter N. Stearns, and Cathy Ann Tower.
