CSU-AAUP Report on Working Conditions of Part-Time Faculty 2005

In fall of 2004, the CCSU-AAUP Part-time Advisory Committee, jointly with the CSU-AAUP Committee on Part-time Faculty Concerns distributed two surveys, one for part-time faculty and one for department chairs.

The results of those two surveys are reported here. In the case of the part-time faculty, the goal was to create a more complete picture of demographics, working conditions and major concerns. The department chairs’ survey was conducted in an effort to understand conditions from a departmental perspective and to gauge variations in working conditions from department to department. It also sought to compare different views of working conditions by part-time faculty and department chairpersons.
