  • Resisting the Increase in Contingent Appointments | AAUP
    percentage of courses taught by full time faculty Accordingly in assigning non tenure track faculty Adelphi will in exercising its academic judgment use its best efforts to do so in a way that will maximize the chances of achieving the goal of 50 of all course sections being taught by full time faculty Adelphi University combined tenure track non tenure track faculty bargaining unit Descriptive Limitations A different approach is to contain the number of non tenure track positions by bargaining limiting criteria for their establishment or continuation Such language is probably more common in dealing with part time rather than full time contingent positions but the principle to try to negotiate is the same if there is an ongoing indefinite need for certain services those services must be provided either by people in career non tenure track positions with some measure of job security or by tenure track faculty Definitional language of this sort is of the type recently negotiated at the University of Oregon Article 15 Academic Classification and Rank Section 2 h ADJUNCT A non tenure track paid temporary appointment that is intermittent or of limited duration University of Oregon combined tenure track non tenure track faculty bargaining unit The Oregon collective bargaining agreement goes on to establish a procedure enforceable through the grievance procedure pursuant to which current faculty with adjunct appointments are to be converted to career non tenure track status with concomitant enhanced job security and financial rewards Also Article V B 8 Non Tenure Track Full Time Faculty Positions Non tenure track fulltime faculty fall under the following categories a instructors b lecturers and c specialist professors a Instructorships are one year appointments to fill unoccupied tenure track lines or flexibility lines established for a defined term to meet unanticipated shifts in enrollment b Lectureships may be established in a department under the following conditions 1 the Committee of the Department and the department chair determine that there is a need for one or more tenure track lines and 2 there is uncertainty concerning the duration of the need or the ability of the University to fund the line s and 3 the Dean and Provost agree to the need for the line s j Specialist professorships may be established in a department on the determination by the Committee of the Department and the department chair of a need for a line defined by two criteria 1 disciplinary skills or expertise that generally cannot be acquired or mastered in academia and 2 disciplinary currency that typically requires the practice of skills that cannot be maintained in academia Monmouth University combined tenure track non tenure track faculty bargaining unit Also Article XIII It is agreed that the use of part time and temporary faculty influences the workload of bargaining unit members and the quality of education offered by the University Therefore the following principles are used to guide the use of part time and temporary appointees The use of part time and temporary appointees

  • Busting the Myths: Faculty Aren’t the Problem; They Are Part of the Solution | AAUP
    education and highlights how faculty are a key part of the solution For decades the AAUP s faculty salary surveys and compensation reports have been authoritative sources of information about the economic status of the profession This year marks the first consequential improvement 1 4 percent in inflation adjusted year over year salary for full time faculty since the Great Recession This year s report also explores four common myths about higher education Myth Faculty are to blame for rising tuition Reality The decline of state appropriations and the erosion of endowments have caused tuition to rise not faculty salaries Over the past five years average net price tuition has risen by about 6 5 percent while total state appropriations have declined by 16 percent Including this year s data with the prior five years we find that full time faculty salaries have declined 0 12 percent continuing the long trend of salary stagnation Myth Faculty are ridiculously overpaid compared to professionals working in the real world Reality Even for the highest ranking professors salaries have failed to keep up with those of similar professions outside of academia In many fields even the highest ranking tenured professors earn less than peers in comparable professions And the vast majority of faculty earn far less Approximately half of all US faculty are hired on a per course basis with very low pay and few benefits Myth Responding to disruptive innovations such as online and for profit education requires replacing tenure track faculty with part time adjuncts Reality Strategic hiring and support for full time faculty can improve quality and enhance an institution s distinctiveness and competitiveness Whether one views education as a public good or as a commodity data clearly indicate that reducing the number of full time faculty is more likely
