There is considerable concern and unease about personnel practices related to part-time and adjunct faculty, postdoctoral fellows, and graduate teaching assistants, but little evidence of an underlying problem, or that its nature is understood, or that academe knows what to do about it. It is suggested that traditional faculty should regard this "subfaculty" as partners in teaching and learning. (MSE)
