Johns Hopkins University Press, 2001 - Education - 224 pages
The growing use of full-time non-tenure-track faculty represents a controversial change in the pattern of staffing colleges and universities in the US. This volume offers an examination of this important phenomenon, examining the issue from the perspectives of both institutions and faculty members. Roger G. Baldwin and Jay L. Chronister offer a systematic look at who non-tenure-track faculty are, the roles they play in higher education, and the policies that control the terms and conditions of their employment.
