Shaping Work-Life Culture in Higher Education provides strategies to implement beneficial work-life policies in colleges and universities. As compared to the corporate sector, higher education institutions have been slow to implement policies aimed at fostering diversity and a healthy work-life balance, which can result in lower morale, job satisfaction, and productivity, and causes poor recruitment and retention. Based on extensive research, this book argues that an effective organizational culture is one in which managers and supervisors recognize that professional and personal lives are not mutually exclusive. With concrete guidelines, recommendations, techniques, and additional resources throughout, this book outlines best practices for creating a beneficial work-life culture on campus, and documents cases of supportive department chairs and administrators. A necessary guide for higher education leaders, this book will inform administrators about how they can foster positive work-life cultures in their departments and institutions.

This new book presents both research (qualitative, quantitative, and mixed-design) and conceptual chapters about the ethical factors to be considered in teaching, administration, and professional practice in higher education settings. The book includes recent research-based ideas in the field of higher education. Topics include cultural competencies for higher education faculty, professionals, and administrators, such as use of language in communicating concepts to students for whom English is not a first language, avoiding imposition of bias, encouraging exposition of perspective, and ethical practices for professionals working with the diverse environments and populations in higher education settings. This work is particularly important since becoming informed on the latest approaches and ideologies is an essential component of both professional preparation and continuing professional development of faculty, professionals, and administrators in higher education. Currently, education practitioners struggle with finding time for professional development and ways to inform themselves of the latest research. This volume will help education practitioners keep abreast of the most important recent research. As college student populations and environments continually change, so must the practices of the professionals who work with them. This volume highlights some of the most recent practices and perspectives in ethics and cultural competence for all college and university personnel. This volume is unique and valuable because other books have addressed culturally competent ethical practices for discrete professions within higher education, no single work has a collection of writings about ethical and culturally competent practices for a variety of the professions in higher education.

To function in the diverse world of the twenty-first century requires a crucial ability to navigate its international and interconnected environments effectively. Such a skill may be defined as cultural capability and developing it is at the forefront of this book, as it guides readers in considering their own experiences of learning and teaching in culturally varied contexts of higher education. Using information that builds upon data gained from several years of practice, across a range of countries and institutions the author considers in detail four main themes: Learning, teaching and assessment as a cultural product of higher education Personal and professional interactions between staff and students The political and personal dimensions of the internationalisation of higher education Methodological and ethical considerations when conducting research across cultures These themes provide for rich opportunities to learn from and about others, about our similarities and differences. In this way, Developing Cultural Capability celebrates a world that is multicultural and interdependent, encouraging operation beyond local and national perspectives. Conducting cross-cultural research is not new, but this book shows how narrative inquiry may be a particularly rich – and sensitive - approach in such research in higher education. By writing as a practitioner researcher who has reflected, extensively and critically, on her own practice, the author here gathers together empirical research, case studies and personal reflections, beliefs and assumptions into an innovative account of cultural capability. Through these rich accounts, this book stimulates researchers or practitioners grappling with the cultural complexity of higher education today to reflect on their own practices, proposing some ways to create environments that are more inclusive.

As much as we think we know about the modern university, very little has been said about what it's like to work there. Instead of the high-wage, high-profit world of knowledge work, most campus employees—including the vast majority of faculty—really work in the low-wage, low-profit sphere of the service economy. Tenure-track positions are at an all-time low, with adjuncts and graduate students teaching the majority of courses. This super-exploited corps of disposable workers commonly earn fewer than $16,000 annually, without benefits, teaching as many as eight classes per year. Even undergraduates are being exploited as a low-cost, disposable workforce. Marc Bousquet, a major figure in the academic labor movement, exposes the seamy underbelly of higher education—a world where faculty, graduate students, and undergraduates work long hours for fast-food wages. Assessing the costs of higher education’s corporatization on faculty and students at every level, How the University Works is urgent reading for anyone interested in the fate of the university.
