Professor Bruce Macfarlane is Professor of Higher Education within Southampton Education School at the University of Southampton.

I am a Professor of Higher Education who specializes in the sociology and philosophy of higher education. In my work I have developed conceptual frameworks for interpreting academic practice, ethics and leadership. Applying a mix of empirical and philosophical enquiry, I have helped to define key concepts including academic integrity, student freedom and performativity, academic citizenship and intellectual leadership.

My best known works are my single authored academic monographs published by Routledge: Teaching with Integrity (2004), The Academic Citizen (2007), Researching with Integrity (2009), and Intellectual Leadership in Higher Education (2012). In other work I have written about higher education as a research field, the changing academic profession, dual sector universities, university degree results and business and management pedagogy. I am a Fellow of the Society for Research into Higher Education and co-founder of the Society for Higher Education Research of Hong Kong.

I have worked in higher education since 1987. I was previously Professor of Higher Education at the University of Hong Kong (2010-2014) and have also held Chairs at two UK universities (2004-2010). My career in higher education has included 13 years as a business and management lecturer (1987-2000) and 10 years working in educational development leadership roles (2000-2010). I have also been a visiting professor in Japan (Nagoya University, 2008) and in Australia (University of Melbourne, 2012). Prior to working in higher education I was a management trainee with Lloyds Bank (1983-1985) and a teacher at a Chinese secondary school in Hong Kong (1985-1986).

My major scholarly contribution to the field of higher education research has been through my sequence of books on what constitutes academic integrity. These single authored monographs published by Routledge draw on empirical research and apply moral theory to academic practice in higher education. They are:

Intellectual Leadership in higher education: renewing the role of the university professor (2012)

Researching with Integrity: the ethics of academic enquiry (2009)

The Academic Citizen: the virtue of service in university life (2007)

Teaching with integrity: the ethics of higher education practice (2004)

I have co-edited 3 further volumes and published around 50 papers in refereed journals, 21 book chapters, and 20 opinion pieces by invitation in international newspapers and professional journals. As a result of my scholarship, I have given over 60 keynotes and other invited lectures in Australia, New Zealand, Germany, Ireland, the UK, China, Japan, Malaysia, and Hong Kong. I am the special issues editor of ISI-listed Higher Education Research and Development, a member of its editorial board and a member of the editorial boards of other leading journals in my field including Higher Education Quarterly.
