AAUP Releases New Numbers on Non-Tenure-Track Faculty

AAUP Releases New Numbers on Non-Tenure-Track Faculty
Source: American Association of University Professors
"In a new report released today, the American Association of University Professors (AAUP) provides new data to document the increasing predominance of non-tenure-track faculty in America’s colleges and universities. The AAUP Contingent Faculty Index 2006 provides data specific to individual college and university campuses on the number of full-time faculty with and without tenure, the number of part-time faculty, and the number of graduate student employees. Together, the categories of contingent faculty—both full- and part-time faculty whose positions are not on the tenure track—comprised 65 percent of all faculty in 2003, and their numbers continue to grow. Because academic freedom for contingent faculty members is not assured, and because contingent instructors are generally not provided with the level of institutional support required to deliver a quality education, the emergence of a contingent faculty represents a fundamental change in the nature of higher education."
