New Round of Grants on Faculty Job Flexibility

September 11, 2009
 

The American Council on Education announced a new round of grants to encourage colleges to offer flexibility to professors seeking to advance their careers while also handling family responsibilities. Among the winners: Bowdoin College, which will use the funds to continue its work to accommodate partners using half-time tenure-track positions, job sharing for academic couples, and a "research associate" title for partners seeking an institutional affiliation. Washington and Lee University will receive funds to provide more options for child care, offer technological alternatives to compensate for necessary time away from campus, and create a "culture of acceptance for flexible career trajectories." Information on all the awards may be found here.
