Tenure Track Faculty Non-tenure-track faculty account for about half of all faculty appointments in American higher education. The non tenure track consists of two major groups: those who teach part time and those who teach full time but are not on tenure-track lines. The rise in part time and non tenure track faculty in higher education threatens the stable employment and careers that faculty members desire. Mass IWJ stands with non-tenure track faculty in their battle for a greater voice concerning working conditions, and access to essential benefits and protections, such as job stability.
