New initiatives in higher education are often borne on the backs of faculty and must succeed in spite of the significant demands of their professional and personal lives. This session invites all AAC&U registrants to consider, at the outset of this year’s program, the readiness—and the willingness—of faculty to adopt plans for institutional transformation. With a new report from a large-scale, longitudinal study on the faculty condition, participants will work together to generate informed questions for subsequent sessions of the Annual Meeting. The dialog will equip attendees to interrogate others about the capacity of the professoriate in the changing landscape of higher education—and about how to build it up.
