MU’s non-tenure track faculty are lobbying for improved representation within the university.
A proposed change to the Collected Rules and Regulations was discussed at a faculty forum Tuesday afternoon. The amendment would redefine “faculty” in order to give voting privileges to non-tenure-track professors.
Nicole Monnier is associate teaching professor of German and Russian Studies, and one of four non-tenure track representatives on the Faculty Council.
The University of Missouri Faculty Council addressed a voting rights proposal to non-tenure track, or NTT faculty at its most recent meeting in Memorial Student Union.
The change will allow NTT faculty to vote on University matters. NTT faculty members are hired under one- or three-year contracts. The exclusion of NTT members has ocurred for years at MU, but has now been brought to the council as a proposal.
