Off the Tenure Track with Janice Epstein book
Unfortunately, as higher education becomes more corporatized and subject to budget cuts, non-tenure track faculty percentages will continue to rise. Gravios (2006) reported that in 2003, 46 percent of faculty worked part-time. In 2007, 49 percent of faculty worked part-time and 12 percent worked full-time but off the tenure track (Clawson, 2009). Kezar (2012) reported that 66 percent of faculty work off the tenure track; the AAUP estimates this group to be as numerous as 68 percent (www.aaup.org/AAUP/issues/contingent/contingentfacts.htm); and the Association of American Colleges and University (AACU) feels non-tenure track appointments have reached 70 percent (www.aacu.org/peerreview/prsu12/RealityCheck.cfm).
