restricted access Exploring Faculty Issues and Institutional Planning for the Twenty-first Century

During the coming decade, American higher education will face a number of significant faculty issues. In this study, the authors used data derived from fifty-six institutions to appraise the planning to meet future faculty staffing needs. The study provides insights into such factors as the abolition of mandatory retirement for both capped and uncapped institutions, tenure ratios, faculty supply/demand, and faculty retirements.
