Study suggests scientific work force is aging -- and will get even older, even as younger scientists hang on the sidelines in hopes of jobs and face longer odds of landing grants.

Surveys

Oct. 23, 2015 -- Inside Higher Ed's 2015 Survey of College and University Faculty Workplace Engagement is a new survey exploring professors' views on how engaged they are. The survey was conducted in conjunction with researchers from Gallup.

A copy of the report can be downloaded here.

On Thursday, Nov. 19, Inside Higher Ed's Scott Jaschik and Doug Lederman conducted a webinar analyzing the survey's findings and answering readers' questions. To view the webinar, please click here.

The survey was made possible in part by financial support from TIAA-CREF.
