"Any college that adopts this book to promote inclusive discussion with faculty, staff and administrators should see many widespread positive changes. The Missing Professor packs value-per-page few books can match. First, it's a fun read! Through a storytelling framework that would make Kieran Egan proud, the author takes us with newly hired professor Nicole for an outrageous romp through the Higher State campus. Second, it's content-rich. Finally, it has a captivating affective depth. Readers quickly recognize equivalents on any campus to the events and characters portrayed here. How these academic characters interact and treat one another not only creates their institution, but also molds them as people. This is the first book I've seen with the courage to look at some common interactions among academics in the eye and extend the invitation: 'Let's have a discussion about this.' Brilliant!" - Ed Nuhfer, Director, Center for Teaching and Learning, Idaho State University
