Two-Tiered Faculty Systems and Organizational Outcomes.
Tolbert, Pamela S.
New Directions for Higher Education, n104 p71-80 Win 1998
A case study of a large research university illustrates the increasing use of nontenured faculty. Origins of the expansion are examined, arrangements used to resolve staffing problems are described, and their effectiveness and general consequences for departments are assessed. It is concluded that while short-term negative outcomes can be addressed with policy, economic and reputational outcomes are more problematic. (MSE)
