Abstract

Junior faculty face greater challenges as a result of time constraints and administrative duties, which may impact their quest for tenure and promotion. Faculty may feel overwhelmed and frustrated by their countless responsibilities, including administrative duties, while tenure and promotion guidelines and requirements appear to be increasing. Using an electronic mailing list populated primarily with social work educators, this Web-based survey explored the perceptions of social work junior faculty regarding their willingness to engage in scholarly activities and their workload demands. The purpose of this mixed method study was to explore the perceptions of untenured and recently tenured social work faculty (n=97) about scholarship expectations, their desires for producing scholarship, and their perceptions about tenure and promotion expectations. The study explored perceived barriers to producing scholarship vis-á-vis workload expectations. The results of the study and strategies for meeting scholarship demands are presented.
