Faculty Motivation: A View from the Ivory Tower
An important question on the minds of higher education administrators is how to motivate their colleagues and subordinates to expend their best efforts on the job. Several years ago, a professor of mine at the University of Illinois-Champaign in a course in educational administration brought the message home for me very poignantly. He said, "We all have the same 24 hours in a day. The role of an administrator, then, is to meet the workers' needs on the job in order to capture the largest portion of their days, or else they'll join the bowling league, and spend more and more of their time there."
