Faculty Career Flexibility in the Academy

The Alfred P. Sloan Foundation supports projects designed to increase our understanding of the work-life conflicts experienced by tenured and tenure-track faculty in American colleges and universities and to promote career flexibility as a viable solution to these conflicts. This specific higher education industry focus is creating greater career flexibility for tenured and tenure-track faculty. Specific initiatives in this area include the Alfred P. Sloan Awards for Faculty Career Flexibility in the Academy, a series of awards given to universities who demonstrate a commitment to work flexibility on campus and for pioneering creative ways to ease the work-family conflicts experienced by faculty.
