© 2020, American Accounting Association. All rights reserved. This essay addresses key needs for research in five areas related to developing and utilizing accounting faculty: faculty development (the backgrounds of who enters academia, how these individuals are trained in doctoral programs, and what advice is given to them), faculty management (the ongoing performance measurement and reward systems that are applied to individual faculty members), faculty portfolio (who provides administrative oversight, how workloads may vary across individuals, and how faculty are utilized), departmental culture (broader issues of culture), and academic freedom (the climate of academic freedom). Within each area, we pose research questions designed to provide faculty members and administrators with insights to enhance the development and utilization of accounting faculty.
