Membership Categories:

  • Part-Time Non-Tenure Track: This category includes all faculty who are not on the tenure track and teach part-time, excluding graduate teaching assistants. Different institutions use various titles, but it might include adjunct, part-time lecturer, and so on. Part-time faculty are usually those with the least institutional support, and thus this category is subsidized.

  • Full-Time Non-Tenure Track: This category includes all faculty who are full-time but not on the tenure track. These faculty may be known as lecturer, visiting assistant professor, teaching faculty, and so on. These faculty may or may not have access to professional development funds, but they are not eligible for tenure. These faculty typically receive benefits, but are not as secure or supported as tenure track faculty, and thus this category is subsidized. 

  • Tenured or Tenure Track: Tenured or Tenure Track faculty often receive support from their institution or are expected to engage in professional development activities as a part of their dossier for promotion and reappointment. While we understand that not all faculty in this category have access to professional development funds, they typically receive the most support from their institutions of faculty types, and thus this category is not subsidized.

  • If you have questions about which category you belong to, please feel free to reach out to our VP of Membership
