Summary

This report, based on a series of interviews and document analyses, presents a case study of one new college faculty member showing the relationships between a department chair, program head, and the new faculty member concerning research expectations and development. The report argues that to be successful in the contemporary research university, a new faculty member must be equipped and able to assume directed lines of inquiry. It maintains that, considering issues of tenure, promotion, and career satisfaction, this research agenda is heightened in importance and becomes an issue for the employing department as well as the faculty member. Analysis suggests that the department chair can aid a new faculty member in establishing a research agenda by providing mentoring opportunities, allowing for open communication, providing peer support, and allowing for concentration on content knowledge. (Contains 13 references.) (Author/CK)
