This week the AAUP released a statement outlining additional protections for contingent faculty, often called "adjunct" faculty. This report follows a draft that the AAUP released in June 2012.
This report suggested expanding the voting and governance rights of tenure-track faculty to all faculty who teach and/or conduct research. With many universities moving toward a majority of faculty who fall into the contingent category, the AAUP urges greater inclusion and protections.
The Nevada Faculty Alliance is currently looking for more adjunct/part-time members to participate in governance.
