Faculty Governance and Nontenure-Track Appointments
Morrison, Joshua D.
New Directions for Higher Education, n143 p21-27 Fall 2008
Nontenure-track faculty are a diverse set of professionals who are difficult to characterize and paint with a broad brush. One issue, however, applies across all nontenure-track faculty appointment types: faculty governance. This article discusses university-level faculty governance participation as it relates to nontenure-track appointments, although many of the same issues also apply to contingent, nontenure-track faculty and at the departmental and academic unit levels. The article concludes with suggestions for future research and recommendations for the effective participation of nontenure-track faculty at all institutional levels.
