Previous research about promotion to full professor has focused on research universities while we examine the issue at liberal arts colleges, institutions that emphasize undergraduate study.




This research is based upon work supported by NSF under Grant Numbers 0820080 and 0820032. We want to acknowledge the work of Ilona Abramova and Christina Gomes, the undergraduate research assistants for this phase of the project, as well as a co-Principal Investigator, Cay Anderson-Hanley, and the other undergraduate research assistants, Tara Kelley, Emily Cooper, Joelle Sklaar, Rena Linden, and Kayleigh Kahn, who worked on the larger research project. None of this work could have been carried out without the invaluable aid of two administrative assistants: Anita Miczek and Linda Santagato. We would also like to thank Alice Dean, Kimberley Frederick, Holley Hodgins, Muriel Poston, Monica Raveret Richter, Barbara Danowski, Kristin Fox, Suthathip Yaisawarng, and especially Brenda Johnson for their contributions to the larger NSF project. Thanks are due also to Todd Benson at COACHE. Any opinions, findings, and conclusions or recommendations expressed in this material are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the view of COACHE, NSF, or Skidmore College.
