DB03:

Structural Consequences of the Over use of Part-Time Positions
  Location: HC 3028
  Date: Tuesday, Aug.2
  Time: 9:30 AM -10:00 AM
  Author: Maria Knudtson, University of Nebraska at Omaha
  Co-Author(s): None
  Abstract: The widespread use of part-time positions has serious structural implications for faculty, departments, and the overall health of higher education. The discussion will cover several broad issues including the effects on faculty infrastructure, equity, academic democracy, and academic freedom, as well as model approaches for correcting dependence on contingent faculty. The pervasiveness of part-time positions provides physics faculty members with allies in addressing this issue as well as promising approaches based on the broad and diverse faculty experience.
