HEA 673 - Faculty in Higher Education: Ever Evolving Roles

3 Credits

This course examines the historical, contemporary, and evolving roles of faculty in higher education. The roles of faculty members at all types of institutions in higher education have changed dramatically over the past three decades. Students will explore the complex factors that have contributed to this change. Students will examine the changing duties and expectations of college and university faculty as well as the unbundling of the traditional faculty roles of scholarship, teaching, and service. Issues such as increased reliance on part-time faculty, quality, and accreditation will also be explored.
