Building a Foundation for Academic Excellence: Towards a Blueprint for The Professional Treatment of Disempowered Faculty
AbstractThis presentation explores what tenured and tenure-line faculty can do to help transform the institutional position of part-time faculty. While it suggests what we can do to end the exploitation and abuse of our colleagues, it is not about the legitimization of these colleagues. They are already legitimate, they are already professional. My concern is with the role of the tenured and the tenure-track, of academic administrators and others with institutional authority, in the empowerment of colleagues who are an indispensible part of UMKC. It is about how "we" might become more professional in the treatment of colleagues who can teach "us" a thing or two about professionalism.
