For many academic institutions in the United States, the faculty model is increasingly differentiated, with different faculty members having different responsibilities and time commitments. Ehrenberg reports that non-tenure-track (NTT) faculty increased between 1995 and 2007 from 24% to 35% at public doctoral institutions and from 18% to 46% at private non-profit doctoral institutions (Ehrenberg, J. Econ. Perspect., 2012, 193-206). For many institutions, supporting NTT STEM Faculty is key to institutional success. We outline some of the current national data on NTT performance in the classroom. We also look at structural ways to provide resources to enhance NTT faculty personal development, professional advancement, research productivity, mentoring skills, and opportunities for innovation.
