New national clearinghouse on academic worklife available online
ANN ARBOR—College and university administrators, researchers and faculty can access articles, policies and discussions regarding academic work life through a new online resource developed at the University of Michigan.
The National Clearinghouse on Academic Worklife (NCAW) combines resources and community discussions to support those who study or participate in academic work. The site provides academic decision-makers with information about peer institutions and policies.
Web site users can search for articles, policies, reports and other resources in the online database that uses sources from various disciplines. The site also provides Web links to associations, online publications and government information sources.
In addition, NCAW serves as an online community with discussion forums on flexible work policies for faculty, tenure track and non-tenure track faculty work, climate and satisfaction, and policy development.
U-M’s Center for the Education of Women developed the site, which was funded by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.
