Many who have completed doctoral degrees face the choice of becoming a faculty member or an administrator. In recent years, many new Ph.Ds were drawn to higher education because they are curious about how it can be improved, and that curiosity continues as they serve the university’s mission through administrative roles that are informed by intentional attention to relevant literature and original research. Administrator Scholars may or may not also hold active academic appointments that include teaching and research. Others conduct their administrative work through the lens of formal inquiry, research and discovery. Is this a trend in academic employment? What are the traits of an Administrator Scholar? How may this create new career paths? How will the practice and scholarly discoveries from such hybrid positions be disseminated and recognized?

Dr. Barbara Holland will moderate a panel of administrator scholars discussing these and other related issues. The discussion will inform the Holland Award for Administrator Scholars.
