Webinar: Contingent Appointments and Faculty Governance

Are you wondering how to include faculty on contingent appointments in governance structures at your university? Entering bargaining or revising your faculty handbook policies on governance? Learn about AAUP policy recommendations on November 1 in a webinar, "Contingent Appointments and Faculty Governance."

We will discuss a recent AAUP report on the topic and review eight policy recommendations covering topics including:

  • Part-time versus full-time contingent appointments
  • Eligibility requirements for participating in governance
  • The participation of contingent faculty in peer evaluations and promotions-and-tenure reviews
  • Compensation for governance participation
  • Institutional retaliation
What: Free online webinar: "Contingent Appointments and Faculty Governance"

When: Friday, November 1, at 1:00 Eastern Standard Time

Who: Mayra Besosa, Chair of the AAUP’s Committee on Contingency and the Profession, will present

How: E-mail gbradley@aaup.org to get registration information.

In order to allow time for questions, participation will be limited to the first twenty-five respondents.

This webinar is offered as part of Campus Equity Week, a national week of actions to raise awareness of the vast majority of faculty who serve in insecure part- and full-time non-tenure-track jobs.
