Gary Rhoades is Professor and Director of the University of Arizona's Center for the Study of Higher Education. Rhoades' research focuses on the restructuring of academic professions and institutions, as in his books, Managed professors (SUNY Press, 1998), and (with Sheila Slaughter) Academic capitalism and the new economy (Johns Hopkins University Press, 2004).  A board member of the New Faculty Majority Foundation, and a former General Secretary of the American Association of University Professors, Rhoades has worked with various advocacy groups and academic unions in relation to the working conditions of faculty and postdocs, as well as served on various task forces of management associations (American Council on Education, Association of Governing Boards, and currently the National Association of College and University Business Officers) seeking to shape public policy in regard to the "business model" of higher education and the structure of academic employment.  His current research concentrates on the working conditions of faculty generally and of adjunct faculty in particular, as he works on a book entitled, Organizing professionals: Negotiating the new academy.
