This session will provide a brief overview of the latest research from the Delphi Project on rethinking and intentionally designing faculty roles to best meet the needs of students, faculty, and institutions. Additionally, we will examine two tools designed to help spark conversations on campus around faculty issues. The first is a self-assessment for departments who are interested in examining their cultures for non-tenure-track faculty. The second is a series of questions for stakeholders across campus to promote dialogue on how to intentionally redesign the faculty role.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Participants will understand key issues around changes to the faculty
  2. Participants will learn about the need for intentionally designed new faculty models
  3. Participants will learn about various departmental cultures that either support or hinder non-tenure-track faculty members' success and well-being
  4. Participants will develop an awareness of the Delphi Project's newest resources and learn how to use these tools on their own campuses
