“It’s systemic,” Goldin told me. “We have to go back to the drawing board and think harder.” She argues that without addressing parenting, the solutions bandied about are “the economic equivalent of tossing a box of Band-Aids to someone with bubonic plague.”
When a child is sick, one parent — it’s usually the mom — has to extricate from work and rush to the pediatrician. In theory, father and mother could trade off these responsibilities, but then neither would make partner. So in practice the man is often the designated career maximizer, while the woman sacrifices career advancement for the
To develop inclusive leadership competency, trainees should reflect on career goals and make a training plan that incorporates opportunities to build leadership experience and self-awareness. They should seek out such leadership experiences and be able to recognize and articulate to others their leadership skills. In addition, institutions and educators
In a recent article, Asheesh Kapur Siddique, an assistant professor of history at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, asks, “What is the left to do about the corporate capture of the modern university?”
While we can answer this singular question in multiple ways, it’s becoming increasingly apparent that a key goal of today’s corporate university is to attack and even destroy tenure. This goal has been playing out in many nonprofit higher education institutions all across the United States, from small private colleges to large public universities. The modern university, led by boards of corporate-minded trustees and presidents
Every February, my graduate program welcomes newly admitted students to an open house event to sit in on classes, meet faculty and current students, network with other prospective students, and preview what life in the program will look like come the fall semester. This past February in particular, prospective part-time master’s and doctoral students asked me questions about balancing a full-time job on campus with graduate school.
Although I ponder this issue often as an academic adviser and doctoral student at the University of Maryland, College Park, my answer is never as thorough or comprehensive as I would like it
Graduate students across disciplines find ourselves in academe for one core reason: we seek to belong to a community where our curiosity is nourished and our commitment to research, writing, teaching and discovery is appreciated. We are also bound to be aware of one of academe’s core problems: the academic job market, especially in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, is dismal.

In 1946, a new Jesuit college in Syracuse opened in a storefront on East Onondaga Street as its campus on the eastern edge of the city was being built. Le Moyne College, named after the 17th century Jesuit missionary to the Haudenosaunee, Simon Le Moyne, would “provide for the city a truly American school with religion and morality as the foundation stones,” wrote Syracuse Catholic Bishop Walter A.
