Pathways to Adjunct Support

Non-tenure track faculty providing amazing instructional and research work for higher education, but receive little support.  Campuses are just beginning to realize that they need to examine support systems and provide policies and practices that ensure these faculty can succeed in their roles. This session will provide an overview of the types of changes needed to better support faculty off the tenure track.  It will also describe ways adjunct faculty and their allies can work to provide these supports using cases from campuses that have transformed to be more supportive of non-tenure track faculty.  The session will also review resources from the Delphi Project on the Changing Faculty and Student Success that can support these efforts to transform campuses.
