Community College Faculty: At Work in the New Economy

Overview

John S. Levin, Susan T. Kater, and Richard L. Wagoner collectively argue that as community colleges organize themselves to respond to economic needs and employer demands, and as they rely more heavily upon workplace efficiencies such as part-time labor, they turban themselves into businesses or corporations and threaten their social and educational mission.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Community College Faculty challenges the 'pseudo-professional' and 'worker bee' characterization of full- and part-time community college faculty. The authors situate a comprehensive understanding of faculty and faculty work in the community college context through which the new economy is played out, arguing that faculty identity, work, and status are bound up in institutional identity. The critical lens of the new economy raises important faculty issues, and identifies consequences of the unfolding community college academic labor market. Cross-national perspectives and narratives of exemplars enrich the scope and relevance of the text, as much as they reinforce the need to think more globally in the new economy, and make this a great resource for policy and decision makers."—Marilyn J. Amey, Professor and Program Chair, Michigan State University

"John Levin, Susan Kater, and Richard Wagoner have written a thought-provoking book on the evolution of the community college mission and the roles of faculty in response to political, economic, and market forces as well as the impact of new technologies..."—George R. Boggs, President and CEO, American Association of Community Colleges

"Community College Faculty is an inquiry into the jourbaney of transitional roles for faculty, over time. It should serve as a framework for examining the shift in faculty roles from a focus on teaching and learning to teaching and learning together with areas such as entrepreneurship and shared governance. The book will engender a debate as we re-affirm our social contract to the communities we serve."—Rufus Glasper, Ph.D., CPA, Chancellor, Maricopa Community Colleges

"In this challenging and well-documented volume, Levin and associates suggest that what they refer to as nouveau college differs markedly from the community college of yesterday. Influenced by the global economy and neo-liberal ideology, community colleges today are thriving in the new economy even as full and part-time faculty strive to define their roles in a college largely influenced by economic and political influences. This book will shake many community college leaders' world—a world that often needs shaking—and thus should be read and debated by those leaders. The result will be a better understanding of the ever-evolving community college."—George B. Vaughan, President Emeritus, Piedmont Virginia Community College, Professor Emeritus, North Carolina State University, and currently editor of the Community College Review
