Dear Colleagues,

 

On Friday morning, December 9, Provost James McCarthy will be speaking on a panel at a conference at Baruch sponsored by the University Faculty Senate and the CUNY Academy. The panel will respond to a keynote presentation by Dr. Benjamin Ginsberg, David Bernstein Professor of Political Science at Johns Hopkins University and author of The Fall of the Faculty: the Rise of the All-Administrative University and Why It Matters (Oxford University Press, 2011), described on the attached as a “lively, humorous, and incisive critique of the changing composition of the American university.” The discussion will focus on “how faculty can assert their professional roles and obligations in what he describes as an administrative rather than academic university.”

 

A modest lunch will be provided.

 

Attendance is only for those registered to attend:
