The New Faculty Majority: Somewhat Satisfied but Not Eligible for Tenure.
Gappa, Judith M.
New Directions for Institutional Research, v27 n1 p77-86 Spr 2000
Discusses the employment conditions and levels of satisfaction of the increasing numbers of full- and part-time college faculty members ineligible for tenure. Recommends extension of academic freedom, a reasonable amount of job security for all faculty, inclusion of tenure-ineligible faculty members in governance, and basing faculty rewards and recognition on productivity rather than tenure status.
