Part-Time Faculty Committee

Post

The Part-Time Faculty Committee advances, through political action and collective bargaining, the interests of contingent faculty in both public and private higher education.

PRIORITIES

  • Track legislation and provide advice to CFT legislative program on policy issues related to part-time faculty.
  • Track the categorical funding in the state budget for part-time faculty to assist with efforts on parity issues.
  • Engage part-time faculty from CFT local unions across the state.
  • Hold workshops and produce materials to ensure that CFT locals have the information to be effective advocates of part-time faculty. 
  • Align committee’s work with any part-time faculty equity efforts of the related Division Councils and provide regular committee updates to them.
