Part-Time Faculty Employment. Project on the Status and Education of Women.
Association of American Colleges, Washington, DC.
Different types of policies adopted by colleges and universities to deal with part-time faculty employment and kinds of issues that may arise are considered. Three types of part-time teaching appointments are distinguished, and the shared appointments or split contracts arrangement is described. The shared appointment is one full-time position held by two persons who together perform the job, and salary, benefits, and responsibility are generally based on one full-time workload. Permitting of mobility, or transfer from full-time status to part-time status and back again, can enable faculty members to continue their careers in an unbroken manner. It is illegal for an employer to discriminate against a part-time employee on the basis of sex, and it is illegal for an employer to restrict or channel women into part-time positions. In some instances, differential treatment of all part-time employees (compared to all full-time) might be considered sex discrimination. Determination of salary, fringe benefits, access to tenure, sabbatical leaves, and other responsibilities is covered. The future of part-time faculty employment, information on where to find policies on part-time employment, and a short annotated bibliography of other resources are included. (SW)
