Part-Time Faculty, Student Success, and Public Policy

  Time: 9:00 AM -9:30 AM
  Author: Representative Michael Dembrow, Oregon Legislature

  Abstract: This talk will review significant public policy issues regarding the over-use of part-time positions generally and in physics in particular in higher education. Along with the negative effects on individual faculty and on departments, these include a number of negative impacts on students: on retention and degree completion, on efforts to prepare students for success in meeting STEM education goals, and on initiatives to move college physics pedagogy in a more student-focused direction. Finally, the talk will review and explore legislative approaches to this growing problem.
