about

Successfully launching an academic career in the challenging environment of higher education today is apt to require more explicit preparation than the informal socialization typically afforded in graduate school. As a faculty novice soon discovers, job success requires balancing multiple demands on one’s time and energy. New Faculty offers a useful compendium of “survival” advice for the faculty newcomer on a variety of subjects:practical tips on classroom teaching, student performance evaluation, detailed advice on grant-writing, student advising, professional service, and publishing. Beginning faculty members—and possibly their more experienced colleagues as well—will find this lively guidebook both informative and thought-provoking.

Editorial Reviews

"If there is one book that every new faculty member should read...this is it."-John D. Foubert, Journal of College Student Development"Lucas and Murry offer advice that most seasoned faculty would agree with. The authors believe that faculty can couple good judgment with their sound advice for the improvement of the academic enterprise. This is a strong and hopeful work." - Robert B. Young, Professor and Chair, Counseling & Higher Education, Ohio University". . .a clearly structured, accessible, and informative primer targeted to full-time faculty members, particularly those in the early years of their appointment. It holds a distinctive place within the growing body of literature on faculty development . . . [T]he authors' ability to weave their attentiveness to the actual questions and concerns most frequently posed by new faculty members into the fabric of academic life contributes enormously to the credibility of the book. . . Many of us will be grateful for the effort." - Bernadette McNary-Zak, Rhodes College
