At the end of the Fall 2017 semester, the Task Force emailed a survey link to all university faculty in non-tenure-track positions. The first email was sent on November 15, 2017; a follow-up, reminder email was sent on December 5, 2017.
We received responses from 26.2% of those who received the emails. The results indicate that NTTF at the university are actively engaged in both research/scholarship and departmental/university service — but they also have varying experiences with access to and participation in shared governance at the departmental levels. Perhaps most importantly, however, the NTTF who responded to the survey overwhelming indicated being open to the idea of serving on the Faculty Senate if given the opportunity:
- Yes: 39%
- Maybe: 38%
These and other data points from the survey results are available in this PowerPoint presentation.
