Governance as a Catalyst for Policy Change: Creating a Contingent Faculty Friendly Academy
Kezar, Adrianna; Sam, Cecile
Educational Policy, v28 n3 p425-462 May 2014
Policymakers and leaders have been calling for changes in the Academy for nontenure-track faculty. This study focuses on the role of governance in creating that policy change, and the practices facilitating their role in changing the institution through governance. Findings include: governance facilitating day-to-day changes, establishing nontenure-track credibility, and dismantling stereotypes; and policies that define faculty roles and enable participation.
