Junior Faculty Development Cover

Junior Faculty Development is designed to encourage mentoring and developmental programs for junior professors. It also serves as a self-help manual for junior and senior faculty members at a variety of institutions, from junior colleges to research universities, and as a guide for job seekers who want to evaluate an academic institution’s developmental programs.

Jarvis has studied existing junior faculty development programs; interviewed over one hundred teachers, researchers, and administrators; and reviewed the fields of personnel and faculty development. This volume offers recommendations for incentives, evaluation techniques, and model programs that promote not only sound research and writing habits but also the art of good teaching and institutional citizenship.
