Decisions about hires--staff versus faculty, tenure track versus non tenure
track, the availability of professional development opportunities, our very working conditions--are clearly tied to financial decisions about how and when lines are funded.
Table 1 examined both tenure track and non tenure track positions combined.
It must be noted that these include part-time, instructors, visiting professors, non tenure track, and tenure track positions.
The good news is that the economy is slowly recovering and schools are increasing the number of faculty in entrepreneurship (non tenure track and tenure track).
higher education has experienced a significant reduction in the proportion of jobs for full-time tenured and tenure-track faculty members and a dramatic growth in "contingent" instructors--full-time non tenure
track, part-time/adjunct faculty and graduate employees.
[Hypothesis.sub.3]: There is no significant difference among the means for professor's contract status (non tenure
track, tenure track, or tenured) regarding their perceptions of disrespectful student behavior on either the PS or the MES.
The corporate mentality is chipping away at tenure and academic freedom, with the hiring of non tenure
track faculty and part time faculty instead of full-time faculty.
