We used data from the 2012 administration of the Faculty Survey of Student Engagement to measure faculty perceptions of senior leaders' (e.g., deans, provosts, presidents) support for innovation in teaching. Specifically, this study explored what faculty characteristics predict faculty perceptions of leaders' support for innovation in teaching and…

Reybold, L. Earle; Halx, Mark D. – Innovative Higher Education, 2018
Scholarship about ethics in higher education often focuses on wrongdoing: cheating, incivility, and a host of other misdeeds. We focus, instead, on ethicality as the enactment of integrity across everyday work life. This approach is particularly true in student affairs where administrators, faculty members, staff members, and students intersect…

Lyken-Segosebe, Dawn E.; Braxton, John M.; Hutchens, Mary K.; Harris, Eugenia – Innovative Higher Education, 2018
Codes of conduct for undergraduate teaching stipulate quality professional standards for teaching. Besides contributing to the safeguarding of student welfare, such codes are critical given the autonomy the professoriate has in the performance of its teaching role, the need for professional self-regulation, and research evidence linking positive…

Mansbach, Jessica; Austin, Ann E. – Innovative Higher Education, 2018
Students' demand for online learning continues. At the same time, results of multiple studies from the early 2000s through the present day point to a set of common concerns that may explain faculty members' hesitation and resistance to online teaching. However, less is known about how faculty members experience online teaching, especially the…

Settles, Isis H.; Brassel, Sheila T.; Montgomery, Georgina M.; Elliott, Kevin C.; Soranno, Patricia A.; Cheruvelil, Kendra Spence – Innovative Higher Education, 2018
As scientific teams in academia have become increasingly large, interdisciplinary, and diverse, more attention has been paid to honorary authorship (i.e., giving authorship to those not making a significant contribution). Our study examined whether honorary authorship occurs because of the desire to include all or many team members. Interviews…

Little is understood about how campus educators within Academic Affairs and Student Affairs use institutional websites to articulate what their institutional commitments to diversity, inclusion, and social justice are and how they are enacted. Through an exploratory content analysis using LePeau's (2015) framework on pathways to partnership (i.e.,…

Holcombe, Elizabeth; Kezar, Adrianna – Innovative Higher Education, 2018
The nature of the faculty has changed dramatically over the last forty years; and today's faculty model no longer meets the needs of students, faculty, or institutions. However, the issue of redefining faculty roles is extremely contentious. In this article we report our examination of open-ended, qualitative data from a larger survey study of…
