Chesapeake, VA Author Publishes Book on Christian Teaching
June 21, 2019 (PRLEAP.COM) Entertainment NewsLight for the Dark Side: Ethics Cases for University Administrators, a new book by Dr. J. Thomas Whetstone, has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.
Educators, administrators, and faculty of Christian institutions should, and can, serve their institution's mission according to a God-honoring ethic. But this is not easy. Teaching and research faculty commonly refer to their administration-the president, provost, and deans-as the Dark Side. Faculty members appointed to administrative positions are sometimes considered traitors for going over to the Dark Side.
The twelve cases offered in this book are based on actual situations involving relations and tensions among university presidents, provosts, deans, department chairs, and other full-time and adjunct faculty members. Questions accompanying each case seek to guide rational discussion of ethical issues involving conflicts of interest, hiring and termination, communication practice, new program development, and relations among students, faculty, and consultants
Light for the Dark Side: Ethics Cases for University Administrators is a 122-page paperback with a retail price of $13.00. The ISBN is 978-1-4809-8748-7. It was published by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
