The Coalition for the Academic Workforce is conducting a survey of
Contingent Faculty Members, Instructors, and Researchers. The survey is
available for completion through November 30th at
The Coalition on the Academic Workforce (CAW) invites all members of the
contingent academic workforce in U.S. colleges and universities to
participate in this survey. The survey inquires about course assignments,
salaries, benefits, and general working conditions as members of the
contingent academic workforce experience them at the institutional level.
We invite participation from all instructional and research staff members
employed off the tenure track, including faculty members employed either
full- or part-time, graduate students remunerated as teaching assistants or
employed in other roles, and researchers and post-doctoral fellows.
You will follow a different branch of the questionnaire depending on your
circumstance. For example, if you are employed part-time at one or more
institutions in fall 2010, you will have an opportunity to complete a
separate screen for each course you are teaching at each institution where
you are employed. If you hold a full-time non-tenure-track position at a
single institution, you will have an opportunity to complete a (different)
form with the number and types of courses you are teaching, the terms of
your contract, and the compensation and benefits you are receiving. The
goal is to develop institution- and discipline-specific information as the
basis for a more textured, differentiated, and realistic picture of
contingent faculty members’ working lives and working conditions. Please
note that any personal information about individuals collected through the
survey is and will remain confidential.
Organized in 1997, CAW is a group of 21 higher education associations,
disciplinary associations, and faculty organizations committed to
addressing issues associated with deteriorating faculty working conditions
and their effect on college and university students in the United States.
