Changing demographics and a new emphasis on economic development, internationalization, and technology, are changing the ways in which university faculty conduct their work. University and college administrators need to be prepared to recruit, hire, and retain new faculty for this new world, and this book is designed to help. In addition to providing a wealth of data about the faculty of the future, it offers practical advice from the authors, and from a number of expert contributors, on recruiting and retaining new faculty while providing a supportive environment for senior faculty during a period of growth in higher education. The lengthy bibliography directs administrators to informative resources on particular topics that are important to their roles in working with academic personnel. The statements of the contributors support the data and conclusions of the authors, and, at the same time, reflect the changing attitudes and expectations about faculty careers. The authors also discuss the issues concerning non-tenure-track faculty. A large and helpful bibliography directs administrators to important resources on particular topics that are important to their roles in working with academic personnel.

Editorial Reviews

Academic leaders and policymakers take note: Faculty Career Paths is a book you will want to read sooner rather than later. Bataille and Brown have combined their own considerable experience with informative research about the changing routes faculty take to enter the contemporary academic marketplace. In so doing, they capably raise the questions 'Who is the new academy?' and 'What factors influence individual career satisfaction and success'?... Each chapter includes compelling commentaries written by experienced practitioners, examples of best practice and concrete recommendations for how leaders and institutions can strategically improve hiring, retention, leadership and work-family practices in order to successfully attract, reward and retain quality faculty. Anyone working with faculty employment, development or retirement policies will find this book compulsory reading.
