The Evolving Faculty Affairs Landscape
Expectations for and demands on faculty members are changing – and college and university leaders need to adapt how they hire, evaluate and support professors to respond to those changes.

Some of these changes have unfolded over decades: the steady erosion in the proportion of professors who operate within the tenure system, increasing research requirements at many institutions, stagnating pay and steadily rising demands related to assessment, committee work and technology.

The turmoil of the past two years has scrambled the academic workplace in ways that are only just beginning to become clear. Instructors took on added responsibility for student well-being even as they struggled with their own, colleges and universities faced intensified calls for further diversifying their faculty bodies, and college professors – like their peers in many other professions – sought more work/life balance and considered leaving when they found it lacking or felt burned out.

This webcast, featuring hosts Scott Jaschik and Doug Lederman, will explore articles and essays from Inside Higher Ed's newly-released compilation, "The Evolving Faculty Affairs Landscape," covering the shifting terrain for higher education faculty members and, by extension, the colleges and universities that strive to keep those instructors as engaged, productive and satisfied employees.
