The Future of the Professoriate: Academic Freedom, Peer Review, and Shared Governance

The first in a new series of occasional papers from AAC&U, The Future of the Professoriate explores the concepts of academic freedom, peer review, and shared governance in light of ongoing changes in the academy that threaten to undermine them. The authors frame a series of especially urgent and timely questions about the future of the academic profession as well as propose specific directions for reform and strategies for revitalizing the profession's social contract.
