Ties to the Outside: An Exploration of Faculty Interactions with External Organizations
Riffe, Karley A.
Higher Education Politics & Economics, v4 n1 p295-313 2018
Faculty work now includes market-like behaviors that create research, teaching, and service opportunities. This study employs an embedded case study design to evaluate the extent to which faculty members interact with external organizations to mitigate financial constraints and how those relationships vary by academic discipline. The findings show a similar number of ties among faculty members in high- and low-resource disciplines, reciprocity between faculty members and external organizations, and an expanded conceptualization of faculty work.
