Editorial Reviews

Review

"One of the most critical issues facing today's university is the rapid growth in the use of non-tenure-track faculty in undergraduate instruction, now exceeding 50% in many institutions. Cross and Goldenberg's book provides not only a thorough documentation of this trend, but, more significantly, addresses why it occurs and what should be done about it. It should be required reading not only by academic leaders and governing board members, but as well by those concerned with higher education policy and the future of the American university."--James J. Duderstadt, President Emeritus and University Professor of Science and Engineering, University of Michigan



"Cross and Goldberg convincingly demonstrate that, despite the best of intentions, university budgetary systems have ratcheted up reliance on off-track faculty in even the most prestigious universities. They then explain the need for more careful consideration of the consequences for undergraduate and graduate instruction and the clear threats to academic governance and academic freedom that threaten to derail the universities along with the faculty." --Ernst Benjamin, Secretary General, American Association of University Professors

(Ernst Benjamin)

"Off Track Profs is a 'must read' for anyone interested in the growing use of non-tenure-track faculty at major universities and the implications of this growth for collective bargaining in higher education, for the quality of undergraduate education, for the future supply of new PhDs in academia, for academic decision making, for governance, and for the tenure system. "--Ronald G. Ehrenberg, Director, Cornell Higher Education Research Institute
