Book Series: Navigating Careers in Higher Education

The book series, ' Navigating Careers in Higher Education', is an initiative of the Susan Bulkeley Butler Center for Leadership Excellence (SBBCLE), Purdue University, West Lafayette (U.S.A) and will be through Purdue University Press.

Focus of Book Series
The success of diverse faculty entering institutions of higher education is shaped by varying factors at both the individual and institutional levels. Gender, race, class, ethnicity and immigrant generation as well as their intersections and interplay influence experiences and aspirations of faculty members and administrators. Women have earned half or more of all doctoral degrees for almost a decade yet remain disproportionately underrepresented in tenured and leadership positions throughout academia. Anyone in higher education from across the world can submit a book proposal.
  
Navigating Careers in Higher Education utilizes an intersectional lens to examine and understand how faculty members and administrators navigate careers and their aspirations to succeed. The series will include edited collections and monographs that adopt an interdisciplinary empirical approach that has theoretical, pedagogical, or policy impacts in addition to enabling individuals navigate their own careers. Books may adopt a US or a global focus and  topics may include addressing sexism, homophobia, racism, and ethnocentrism; examining the role of higher education institutions; analyzing the effects of growing non-tenure track faculty; addressing the challenges of pursuing a research agenda that may be perceived as controversial; maintaining a life-work balance; and entering leadership positions. Additional topics related to careers in higher education are also welcome. Book proposal guidelines are here: http://www.thepress.purdue.edu/pages/prospective-authors. We will receive and evaluate book proposals on a rolling basis year-round.
