Tenure Track in Decline

The American Association of University Professors released this week its Contingent Faculty Index, with the numbers of tenured, tenure-track, part-time, and full-time non-tenure-track faculty members employed at 2,617 American colleges and universities.

From the Chronicle of Higher Education, via workplace prof blog: “Since the 1970s, the proportion of tenured and tenure-track faculty members in the American professoriate has dwindled from about 57 percent to about 35 percent, while the proportion of full- and part-timers working off the tenure track has grown from about 43 percent to 65 percent.”
