Jensen Contributes Chapter to New Book
Professor of Economics Elizabeth Jensen contributed an invited chapter to a newly published book examining education at small liberal arts colleges. The Best Kind of College: An Insiders’ Guide to America’s Small Liberal Arts Colleges is edited by Susan McWilliams and John E. Seery and published by SUNY Press. It includes chapters by 30 award-winning professors across the country.
Jensen’s chapter, “The ‘Job Definition’ of a Faculty Member at a Liberal Arts Institution,” examines the expectations for tenure and promotion at selective liberal arts institutions; she notes that a faculty member at a liberal arts college must meet many professional responsibilities but also that the occupation is rewarding.
