9 A.M., FRIDAY, DECEMBER 9, 2011, Baruch College, CUNY

Registration Required (see below)


Keynote Speaker

Dr. Benjamin Ginsberg, David Bernstein Professor of Political Science at Johns Hopkins University on his recent book, The Fall of the Faculty: the Rise of the All-Administrative University and Why It Matters (Oxford University Press, 2011).

Over the last three decades, administrators and associated professional staff have grown by 240%, while the increase in faculty has slipped to 51%.  In The Fall of the Faculty, Ginsberg argues that these trends have contributed to the decline of research and teaching, while raising the price tag of a college education far beyond the means of most middle-class American families.
