On the Emergence of a Teaching-Intensive Faculty Tier
A special session. Presiding: Russell A. Berman, Stanford Univ.
Speakers: Leonard Cassuto, Fordham Univ., Lincoln Center; Stephanie Downie, Arizona State Univ.; Paula M. Krebs, Bridgewater State Univ.
The off-tenure-track faculty workforce, once considered temporary, is now permanent. The growth of this tier affects the educational goals of institutions and the professional identity of professors—and attention must be paid. Panelists address the professionalization of teaching-intensive tracks from perspectives centering on graduate students, faculty members, and institutions.
