New Report on Working Conditions of Part-Time Faculty Members
The Coalition on the Academic Workforce (CAW)—a coalition of associations, including the MLA, working to address deteriorating faculty working conditions and their effect on college and university students in the United States—has released the results of its broad-reaching survey of contingent faculty members. Designed to address the lack of data on contingent academics and their working conditions, the survey received more than 10,000 responses from faculty members who were teaching part-time in fall 2010. These responses provide the basis for a detailed portrait of the work patterns, remuneration, and employment conditions for what is now the largest part of the academic workforce.
