Publisher Comments:

Casebook I: Faculty Employment Policies presents six cases that were developed by the Project on Faculty Appointments at the Harvard Graduate School of Education and designed to be used in a variety of instructional settings in order to explore and analyze efforts to bring about institutional change. Each case study highlights a particular challenge regarding faculty employment and illustrates these challenges using situations from actual institutions of higher education. The cases provide a wealth of background information and are filled with real-life details. In addition, the cases are comprehensive in scope and reflect the complexity of administrative decision making as experienced by academic leaders. The six cases explore the following issues:
  • How can an institution move forward and make progress in areas that have stymied its leaders for years?
  • How can an academic administrator effect positive change on several fronts at once while tackling head-on some of the most contentious and complex issues in faculty employment?
  • How can an institution define and evaluate faculty productivity while taking into account disciplinary distinctions and diverse faculty interests and assignments?
  • How can a college alter its faculty employment policies during a time of institutional transformation, while simultaneously responding to the distinct needs of multiple campus constituencies?
  • What is the nature of transformative leadership, and what lessons can be learned from educational leaders about initiating, managing, and institutionalizing change?
  • How can an institution respond to external concerns regarding its employment policies while maintaining control of a process with substantive, procedural, and political dimensions?
Casebook I: Faculty Employment Policies has two companion volumes: Using Cases in Higher Education: A Guide for Faculty and Administrators and Teaching Notes to Casebook I: Faculty Employment Policies. Using Cases in Higher Education: A Guide for Faculty and Administrators offers general advice concerning using case studies as pedagogical tools, and Teaching Notes to Casebook I: Faculty Employment Policies includes specific suggestions, insights, and approaches to teaching each of these six cases.

Book News Annotation:

Six case studies focus on various aspects of faculty employment policy in higher education. They can be used in executive education programs and professional development institutes, graduate courses in education administration, in-service workshops, or campus-based planning sessions. Because they are designed for teaching, they tend to be longer and broader in scope than conventional decision cases.
