Improve term faculty packages to help increase research activity while maintaining teaching quality.

Full-time, non-tenure track positions have increased significantly across higher education in recent years, but many institutions haven’t fully committed to the model. University of Delaware is leading the way in this area, offering term faculty packages that often outmatch tenure-track packages elsewhere. While many institutions are striving for 2-year contracts, Delaware offers a series of progressively longer contracts – featuring competitive pay, titles, benefits, and opportunities for promotion to boot.

Join us online to learn more about University of Delaware’s term faculty packages, which have helped meet the increasing research demands of an R1 institution. In this webcast, Matt Kinservik (Vice Provost for Faculty Affairs) will share the key components of UD’s term faculty model and describe how UD has used it as a recruitment and retention strategy.

Who Should Attend

This webcast will benefit institutions who see utilizing term faculty contracts as a way to grow their research operations without sacrificing teaching quality.

Faculty affairs professionals in the early stages of improving term faculty packages and identifying best practices should attend. You should also invite provosts and deans if increasing the number of term faculty is a key priority at your institution.

Agenda

This webcast will showcase an innovative practice in higher education. You may not be able to emulate it, but we will provide a model to help inspire your thinking on the topic. We will address the following questions about the model:

  • What has the University of Delaware been able to achieve in the last 20 years by creating attractive term faculty packages?
  • What does University of Delaware offer as part of their term faculty packages – including contract length, pay, benefits, and opportunities for promotion?
  • What conversations should your institution have early on in order to get this right?
    • Titles
    • Opportunities for promotion in rank (and attendant criteria)
    • Appropriate workload mix of teaching, service, and research
    • Participation in shared governance
    • Expectations for campus leadership on pedagogy and the evaluation of teaching
