Academic Freedom for Contingent Faculty Members: Strategies for Establishing Due Process
A special session. Presiding: Sue Rowe Doe, Colorado State Univ., Fort Collins; Maria Maisto, New Faculty Majority
Contingent faculty members have limited access to due process, which is key to securing academic freedom. This workshop, which could generate working groups within the MLA and with other groups, helps participants understand various methods, including collective bargaining, governance, and legal avenues, through which due process rights can be established for contingent faculty members.
