The AAUP released its Annual Report on the Economic Status of the Profession on April 11. This year’s report, “Higher Education at a Crossroads,” puts into perspective data that demonstrate a modest increase in compensation for full-time faculty even as the percentages of tenured and tenure-track faculty have decreased over the past four decades. In this video, AAUP senior higher education researcher John Barnshaw discusses the report and its recommendation that institutions convert part-time faculty to full-time positions. The report includes cost estimates for full and partial conversion at various types of institutions.
