The Academic Workplace
From 1989 to 2006, NERCHE distributed a biannual print newsletter with the aim of increasing readers' understanding of higher education policy and practices.  The themes for The Academic Workplace were drawn from Think Tank discussions, NERCHE research projects, and conference topics.  Feature articles and book reviews explored, for instance, the impact of technology on campuses, for-profit higher education, and department chairs as change agents.
