Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Lucas and Murry (both professors of higher education, U. of Arkansas- Fayetteville) argue that newcomers to the academic professions, contrary to prevailing thought, require extensive on-the-job preparation in order to fully succeed in their careers. They offer advice to new professors in the areas of teaching, student advising, publishing requirements, gaining grants, faculty services, and legal issues. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
From the Publisher
"If there is one book that every new faculty member should read...this is it."-John D. Foubert, Jourbanal of College Student Development

"Lucas and Murry offer advice that most seasoned faculty would agree with. The authors believe that faculty can couple good judgment with their sound advice for the improvement of the academic enterprise. This is a strong and hopeful work." - Robert B. Young, Professor and Chair, Counseling & Higher Education, Ohio University

". . .a clearly structured, accessible, and informative primer targeted to full-time faculty members, particularly those in the early years of their appointment. It holds a distinctive place within the growing body of literature on faculty development . . . [T]he authors' ability to weave their attentiveness to the actual questions and concerns most frequently posed by new faculty members into the fabric of academic life contributes enormously to the credibility of the book. . . Many of us will be grateful for the effort." - Bernadette McNary-Zak, Rhodes College
