Universities exist both to create knowledge and to pass the knowledge won by previous generations to the rising generation. They exist for their students. And, in a very real sense, a university’s students and graduates embody that institution. They physically represent what that university produces.  But a university’s faculty is the institution’s soul.

Students graduate. But it is not uncommon for faculty members to serve 30 or 40 years. Collectively, they determine the nature of an institution: how welcoming it is, how innovative, how rigorous, and how outward facing.

There are few jobs as interesting, or as all-consuming, as full-time faculty positions at institutions that value teaching. The best faculty members love their disciplines and they love teaching. To love a discipline means to practice it, to advance knowledge in that discipline, and to contribute to that discipline. That is a full-time job. To love to teach means to care about students, to be able to motivate and encourage each student and to adjust to the different ways in which each individual student learns. That, too, is a full-time job. A typical professor views holidays, when the university is not in session, as an opportunity to do research in labs or in the field or in archives.
