Standing Still: the Associate Professor Survey

Rapport van Modern Language Association

Standing Still: The Associate Professor Survey presents findings from the survey of associate professors and professors that the MLA conducted in 2006. The survey studied the work experience, career paths, and career progress of associate professors, about which there has been considerable interest but little documentation. The report reveals how long men and women spend at the rank of associate professor before promotion to professor. It also looks at the different amounts of time that men and women associate professors give to teaching, research and writing, departmental service, and family commitments such as child care and elder care.
