The University and Part-Time Faculty: An Interdependent Relationship.
Smith, Robert M.
Arguing for recognition of the interdependent relationship between the university and the part-time faculty member, this paper offers suggestions as to how both can benefit from strategies that make the most of that interdependence. Specifically, it recommends that university administrators take a leadership role in establishing a system of recriprocal agreements--"professional growth contracts"--with part-time staff members. It then proposes a contract form that deals with the selection of part-time faculty, the orientation process for that faculty, steps in its professional development, and its evaluation. (FL)
