Engaging the Next Generation of Faculty
Maxwell, David
Presidency, v12 n1 suppl p5-7 Win 2009
At a roundtable meeting of 18 college and university presidents convened by American Council on Education (ACE) in the spring of 2007, there was a worried discussion about the perception that younger faculty currently entering the professoriate are increasingly less engaged in the affairs of their institutions, in fulfilling their responsibilities inherent in the model of shared governance, and in assuming those roles that will prepare them for institutional leadership. These clearly are not entirely new issues, but they are indeed of concern. Are new, younger faculty less loyal to their university than their older counterparts? The author discusses ways to overcome generational gaps in order to foster a more collaborative environment and ensure a genuine interest in the institution's future. (Contains 7 notes.)
