Campaign for the Future of Higher Ed Releases Report on Contingent Faculty

A new report out from the Campaign for the Future of Higher Education (of which the AAUP is a member) focuses on problems faced by contingent faculty and their students at the start of the term. The report, based on a survey by the New Faculty Majority of five hundred faculty members in contingent positions, finds that many have “at best, inadequate access to sample course syllabi, curriculum guidelines, library resources, clerical support, and the like. They often have only limited, if any, access to personal offices, telephones, computers, and associated software, and technological tools and training.”
