Non-tenure track faculty working conditions are student learning conditions.
Non-tenure-track (NTT) faculty at Skidmore are uniting for change. We are a vital part of the learning process. Counting part-time faculty, nearly half of all Skidmore’s faculty are NTT, and NTT faculty account for more than a third of the College’s full-time faculty. We are some of the first faculty Skidmore students encounter in their journey on campus. But despite our extensive contributions, Skidmore’s non-tenure track faculty are not afforded adequate job security, resources, or support.
To address these needs, non-tenure track faculty at Skidmore College have joined together to establish a NTT faculty union through Service Employees International Union (SEIU). With our colleagues locally and nationwide in SEIU’s Faculty Forward movement, we are committed to advocating for just labor practices here at Skidmore and across higher education.
