With roughly 25% of those teaching college classes belonging to a union, higher education is one of the most heavily organized industries in the United States. Substantial research-based literature exists as scholars have been studying the topic for a half of a century. Following an overview of its history and context, this monograph synthesizes and analyzes the existing research on faculty and graduate student unionization. It points to evolving understandings of faculty attitudes regarding collective bargaining and the findings on the relationships between unionization and compensation, satisfaction, procedural protections, organizational effectiveness, and related issues for tenure-line faculty. Additional chapters consider the more limited research on non-tenure-line faculty and graduate student instructors. As such, this monograph illuminates the accepted understandings, contested arguments, and the substantial gaps in understandings that remain. This is the third issue of the 43rd volume of the Jossey-Bass series ASHE Higher Education Report. Each monograph is the definitive analysis of a tough higher education issue, based on thorough research of pertinent literature and institutional experiences. Topics are identified by a national survey. Noted practitioners and scholars are then commissioned to write the reports, with experts providing critical reviews of each manuscript before publication.

"Dramatic shifts in the demographic and labor diversity of American faculty have pressed institutions and the profession to clarify who the 'real' faculty are. Emblematic of this struggle, full-time, non-tenure tract faculty are often caught in between the world of tenured faculty, where they fulfill many of the same roles, and that of adjunct faculty, with whom they experience similar employment insecurity and minimal institutional support. Efforts to equalize respect, resources, and treatment, although laudable, may be missing a vital aspect of the conversation: the role of collegiality and the collegium. Collegiality, the cultural, structural, and behavioral components, and the collegium, or the shared identity collegiality serves, are ancient concepts that in contemporary contexts often receive more regard than clarity. The intersection of these conceptual and practical challenges raises timely questions for the faculty profession. What is it about the history of the professoriate in America that has rendered the collegium inadequate and yet so important in an age of differentiated labor? How might a renewed vision for collegiality bring clarity to the question of which faculty should be regarded as experts? How can we adapt and leverage these important concepts for a professoriate that is increasingly diverse by demographics and employment category in ways that result in a more inclusive and robust profession? Engaging in these questions through the extant literature will call faculty, administrators, and graduate students into a compelling new conversation about the needs of and possibilities for the professoriate"--Back cover.

Take a critical look at the theory and recent empirical research specific to mentoring undergraduate students. This monograph: * Explains how mentoring has been defined and conceptualized by scholars to date, * Considers how recent mentoring scholarship has begun to distinguish mentoring from other developmental relationships, * Synthesizes recent empirical findings, * Describes prevalent types of formalized programs under which mentoring relationships are situated, and * Reviews existing and emerging theoretical frameworks. This monograph also identifies empirical and theoretical questions and presents research to better understand the role of mentoring in promoting social justice and equity. Presenting recommendations for developing, implementing and evaluating formal mentoring programs, it concludes with an integrated conceptual framework to explain best-practice conditions and characteristics for these programs. This is the first issue of the 43rd volume of the Jossey-Bass series ASHE Higher Education Report. Each monograph is the definitive analysis of a tough higher education issue, based on thorough research of pertinent literature and institutional experiences. Topics are identified by a national survey. Noted practitioners and scholars are then commissioned to write the reports, with experts providing critical reviews of each manuscript before publication.

General education is widely touted as an enduring distinctive of higher education, but what do we actually mean by general education? Differing perspectives not only make it challenging to consider its significance, but also open it up to a wide range of determinations regarding its effectiveness. This volume aims to sharpen understanding of the complex picture of general education by: * describing how various conceptions of general education evolved historically, * identifying various functions expected of general education in the contemporary context, and * pointing out the educational practices that fulfill general education s aims in the current context. The conceptions of, and aspirations for, general education are consequential. This volume disentangles the divergent conceptions that hinder its renewal and considers the range of avenues for realizing its effectiveness. This is the second issue of the 42nd volume of the Jossey-Bass series ASHE Higher Education Report. Each monograph is the definitive analysis of a tough higher education issue, based on thorough research of pertinent literature and institutional experiences. Topics are identified by a national survey. Noted practitioners and scholars are then commissioned to write the reports, with experts providing critical reviews of each manuscript before publication.

Social media is central to postsecondary education. It is how students engage with the campus community, and campus leaders and practitioners are interested in how an institution can employ social media to impact instruction, student services and institutional effectiveness in an increasingly competitive market. This volume presents the current research and scholarship on social media that provides a view of the higher education landscape in this new digital age and it demonstrates how social media influence behavior and campus culture. Drawing on a critical synthesis and analysis from recent research on this rapidly evolving phenomenon, this monograph examines: * some of the assumptions and presumptions around social media, * how social media is used and how it shapes the student experience and student development, and * best practices for enhancing curricular and co-curricular communities of practice. This is the 5th issue of the 42nd volume of the Jossey-Bass series ASHE Higher Education Report. Each monograph is the definitive analysis of a tough higher education issue, based on thorough research of pertinent literature and institutional experiences. Topics are identified by a national survey. Noted practitioners and scholars are then commissioned to write the reports, with experts providing critical reviews of each manuscript before publication.

Francis Edward "Ab" Abernethy served as the Secretary-Editor of the Texas Folklore Society for over three decades, managing the organization's daily operations and helping it grow. He edited two dozen volumes of the PTFS series and wrote the three volumes of the Society's history. This publication of the Texas Folklore Society celebrates Ab Abernethy's years of leadership in collecting, preserving, and presenting the folklore of Texas and the Southwest. The prefaces to some of the more memorable edited volumes are included, along with articles he wrote on music, teaching, anecdotes about historical figures and events, and "cultural" examinations of the things we hold dear. In all, these pieces tell us what was important to Ab. In part, these topics are also what was-and still is- important to the Texas Folklore Society.
