Description - The New Academic Generation by Martin J. Finkelstein

American colleges and universities are poised at the edge of a remarkable transformation. Focusing on the changing face of academe, as women, foreign-born and minority scholars enter the professoriate in large numbers, this text argues that the new generation will usher in an era of dramatic change. The authors base their analysis on the 1993 National Study of Postsecondary Faculty, conducted by the US Department of Education's National Center for Education Statistics. This survey of faculty provides detailed analyses permitting the authors to describe the characteristics of the relatively new entrants into academic careers, and to compare them with their senior colleagues. The analysis is presented in 88 tables, in which the authors describe their findings, examine future issues for teaching-learning communication, and provide strategies for strengthening the faculty - and thereby higher education itself. The challenges posed by this new academic generation, they conclude, will be one of the defining issues for American colleges and universities for years to come.
