Participating Faculty Task Force elevated to standing committee; new members sought, encouraged to apply
To better understand the experience of Marquette’s full- and part-time participating (non-tenure track) faculty, in June 2019, then Acting Provost Kimo Ah Yun convened a Task Force to study the participating faculty experience and make recommendations to improve that experience based on their findings.
As one result of the task force’s work, Provost Kimo Ah Yun has transitioned the group to a standing committee. The Participating Faculty Committee will address issues of importance to members of the Marquette faculty, full and part-time, hired on a participating or non-tenure track line. The committee will focus on how to improve the “lived experience” of participating faculty and address issues that include, but are not limited to, total rewards (including compensation and benefits), professional development, recognition, inclusion, and performance review and promotion.
Full or part-time participating faculty members who have been employed for two-and-a-half or more continuous years are invited to apply for one of five participating faculty member positions. Applicants should have a demonstrated interest in the work of the committee and willingness and ability to serve a two-year term.
Interested faculty should complete this application form and submit it to Dr. Gary Meyer, senior vice provost for faculty affairs, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Participating Faculty Task Force – summary of work
June 2019 – April 2023
To better understand the experience of Marquette’s full- and part-time participating (non-tenure track) faculty, in June 2019, then Acting Provost Kimo Ah Yun convened a Task Force to study the participating faculty experience and make recommendations to improve that experience based on their findings. The Task Force was comprised of more than 20 individuals and included both tenured and participating faculty members, leaders from each of Marquette’s colleges and schools (as well as the Raynor Libraries), and members from various university offices including the Office of Institutional Research and Analysis, Office of Marketing and Communication, Office of the General Counsel and Human Resources.
Qualitative and quantitative data were collected through a variety of methods, including: listening lunches with participating faculty; an anonymous online questionnaire; analysis of policies and procedures associated with the participating faculty experience across all of Marquette’s colleges and schools (everything from hiring, onboarding and supervision to compensation, benefits and professional development to recognition, reappointment and promotions); data from 18 peer universities; and the College and University Professional Association for Human Resources’ Faculty Salary Survey.
Based on the information they were able to collect and review, the Task Force made recommendations for improving the participating faculty experience at Marquette, which were categorized into the following five themes: (1) Contract Terms, (2) Compensation and Total Rewards, (3) Performance Evaluation and Promotion, (4) Professional Development, and (5) Recognition and Inclusion.
Task Force members believe that some of the recommendations can be acted upon relatively quickly, while others will take further study. Likewise, some recommendations can be implemented at relatively little financial cost, whereas others will take some additional time, study and financial resources to implement.
