Recent work in adult development serves as a conceptual base for examining personal and professional developmental potentials, tasks, and conflicts for five faculty groups. The five groups are Age 30 Transition faculty, Dual Career Couple faculty, Midlife faculty, Late Entry faculty, and Senior Retiring faculty. These groups were selected because they represent different intersection points of chronological and organizational age and because they illustrate increasingly difficult personal and organizational dilemmas facing faculty and administrators. For each faculty group these dilemmas will be identified and appropriate personal, organizational or policy interventions proposed.
