Editorial Reviews

Review

"an exceptionally lucid analysis of the gap that has opened up between academic careers in the golden age and the reality of faculty appointments today." (Change, Sept/Oct)

Review

"This book is a must-read for college and university leaders from presidents to faculty. It offers solutions to resolve the major challenges faced in recruiting, retaining, reviewing, and respecting the best faculty and in transforming the culture of the workplace."
—Claire A. Van Ummersen, vice president, Center for Effective Leadership, American Council on Education and former president, Cleveland State University

"Gappa, Austin, and Trice define the front lines of change in the academic profession—a far more diverse and contingent workforce than ever before. Their imaginative call for new norms and practices to assure that academic careers continue to offer the best and brightest satisfying and fulfilling professional lives is original and refreshing."
—David Leslie, chancellor professor of education, College of William & Mary

"Critical reading for all concerned about the future of the university. Rethinking Faculty Work takes a hard look at the fast-changing university culture and provides a road map on how to prepare for the future."
—Mary Ann Mason, dean of the graduate division, University of California, Berkeley

"Gappa, Austin, and Trice provide faculty and institutional leaders with an exciting new way to think about how the academic workplace can meet the needs of a new academic workforce. They identify essential components of the faculty experience, which, if addressed by colleges and universities, would make higher education a more satisfying, stable, and productive place to work for all faculty members."
—Betsy E. Brown, associate vice president for academic affairs and executive director, UNC Leadership Institute, Office of the President, University of North Carolina
