    is by its very nature virtually unbounded In addition to teaching classes advising students and serving on departmental committees faculty members are expected to keep abreast of developments in their fields of specialization by engaging in original research and scholarship participating in activities of one or more professional societies and to read the latest research studies produced by their colleagues There is always a new question to ask further analysis to complete or another issue to discuss An academic career demands an intense some academics would say total commitment But faculty members like anyone else are not defined entirely by their professional pursuits They are members of families with obligations to care for and devote time to their loved ones Finding the appropriate balance between an academic career and family responsibilities has been especially difficult for women who in our society continue to perform the bulk of family work childrearing domestic chores and care for family members with special needs The AAUP s efforts to address the special challenge of making academic careers more compatible with participation in family life proceed from the Statement of Principles on Family Responsibilities and Academic Work 2001 To encourage implementation of the policies and practices set forth in that document the AAUP has developed this website as a resource for both faculty and institutions What Colleges and Universities Should Know about Work Family Issues The average age for receipt of a Ph D is 33 placing the tenure year at age 40 Women are more likely to receive the Ph D at a slightly older median age 34 1 years as compared to 32 8 years for men Thus the period of most intensive work to establish an academic career coincides with prime child rearing years Because they are more likely to carry the
