What faculty do with their time and increasing expectations

Future work : faculty time in the 21st century

William M. Plater

Change v. 27 (May/June 1995) p. 22-33

“During the past three or four years, most faculty around the country have been engaged in serious discussions about the changing nature of our work. Often these conversations are fleeting commentaries on what is wrong with the administration or on trustee interference, spoken hastily but earnestly while waiting for a committee meeting to begin. But these concerns are also the focus of various task forces, commissions, and councils–all wrestling with not only how best to explain what faculty do with their time, but also how to respond to increased expectations for faculty work.
