Exploring the Satisfaction of Part-Time College Faculty in the United States.
Antony, James Soto; Valadez, James R.
Review of Higher Education, v26 n1 p41-56 Fall 2002
Used nationally representative data to provide a comprehensive comparative picture of the satisfaction between full- and part-time faculty members (both tenure-track and non-tenure-track) within and across U.S. 2-year and 4-year post-secondary institutions. Found a different picture than that proposed by popular accounts of part-time faculty, concluding that they seem fairly satisfied with their roles. (EV)
