Devoted Academics: Ethical Responsibilities and Service in University Leadership
Devoted Academics is guided by the author’s 45-year career in tenured faculty posts (chemical sciences), and significant management and administrative positions at six U.S. research universities. The book is both a personal journey, and a discussion of the challenges, successes, and failures inherent in academic life. In all cases, the author stresses how important an ethical sense of responsibility, accountability, and the development of character are to successful service in academic roles. Devoted Academics is an inspiration to young scholars, contemplating a life in the academy; mid-career academics who can learn from communication and other strategies as they consider future career options; and older academics, who will enjoy comparing their experiences with those of the author and his colleagues.
Author: Dr. Robert V. Smith is Senior Consultant, Registry for College and University Presidents, and former Provost or Vice Provost for Research and Graduate Dean at four U.S. Research Universities. He lives in Fort Worth, Texas, U.S.A.
