Academe brings faculty the latest news
and thought-provoking commentary.

<http://www.aaup.org/AAUP/pubsres/academe/>Academe, the magazine for and about the higher education community, features articles about the issues you face at your institution every day. Six times a year, the magazine tackles the latest controversies, such as the Nadia Abu El-Haj tenure case at Barnard, as well as the problems you face in your own professional life?how to teach well in a large lecture class or what criteria to use in deciding tenure and promotion.

This issue includes a special section on the concept of the mission statement. We can take charge of the future of our institutions when we hold administrators to the standards we set in mission statements. Check out the pros and cons of mission statements in the latest issue of Academe , the AAUP magazine that's both for and about you.

We want to hear from you! Respond to Academe articles using the new comment function on our Web site. And feel free to forward this newsletter, which includes links to just a few of the topical articles in the upcoming issue, to friends in your department or others on your campus, especially people who are not members of the AAUP.
