Abstract

Stanley Aronowitz wrote a prescient book in 2000. Titled The Knowledge Factory, it did not take women academics as its focus, but emphasized the consequences of separating the teaching/researching academic from the ‘manager.’ This demarcation of teaching, research and management has intensified through the 2000s. This is also a gendered separation. This article offers a model for women moving into higher education leadership, based on a considered integration of teaching, research and university service. We argue for a transformation, moving from Rosemary Deem’s “manager-academics” to “academics who manage.” This is not simply a movement from a compound noun to a noun and verb, but a reminder that university leaders are academics first, and manage within the context of their academic responsibilities.
