Reconceptualizing a More Inclusive Faculty Engagement Model: Including and Engaging Part-Time Faculty at Community Colleges
Thirolf, Kathryn Q.
Community College Journal of Research and Practice, v41 n4-5 p303-310 2017
Because of the importance of faculty engagement to achieve our nationwide student completion goals, this paper comprehensively and critically reviews the conceptualizations of faculty and employee engagement in the extant literature. This review is a means to develop an improved, more inclusive, faculty engagement framework. It is a framework that positions adjunct faculty at community colleges--who have been too often marginalized--as a central group that should also benefit from new engagement models.
