Academic Senate Committee on Non Tenure-Track Faculty Policy

The Committee on Non-tenure-track Faculty Affairs monitors the working environment, conditions of employment, benefits eligibility, opportunities for participation in governance, opportunities for professional advancement, and participation in the academic life of the university provided for non-tenure-track faculty. It tracks any significant changes in the proportion of non-tenure-track to tenure-track faculty within the total faculty in individual units and in the university as a whole, and monitors compliance with the Faculty Handbook and with stated school policies of the school or unit. It may make recommendations to relevant Senate and University committees, and to the Academic Senate, concerning any policy issues which bear on the use and profile of non-tenure-track faculty.

Membership will include non-tenure-track faculty (full-time and part-time, research track, clinical track, and teaching track) as well as tenure-track faculty.
