New book: Reconstructing relationships in higher education

Dr Celia Whitchurch has co-authored a new book entitled Reconstructing Relationships in Higher Education: Challenging Agendas.

Drawing on two international research projects, this book looks behind formal organisational structures and workforce patterns to consider the significance of relationships, particularly at local and informal levels, for the aspirations and motivations of academic faculty. The book will be of interest to senior management teams, practising managers at all levels, academic faculty, and researchers in the field of higher education.

It reviews ways in which institutions are responding to more approaches by academic faculty, particularly younger cohorts, and the significance of local managers, mentors and academic networks in supporting individuals and promoting career development.

Reconstructing Relationships in Higher Education: Challenging Agendas is co-authored by Professor George Gordon and published by Routledge.
