How can higher education inspire and reinforce greater faculty involvement in the life of the "whole student" given current constraints on and expectations for faculty work? Research from two recent national surveys of chief academic officers on faculty work sheds light on this question by highlighting current faculty employment conditions and expectations. Additional recent research is reviewed to link faculty expectations with student growth. Implications for faculty development that will best serve student needs are explored. (Contains 3 tables.)
