U of I Faculty Without Tenure Want More Security

URBANA, Ill. (AP) - The growing number of professors at the University of Illinois who don't have tenure want somebody besides their students to listen to them.

The (Champaign) News-Gazette reports adjunct faculty, instructors, lecturers and others who don't have tenure are hoping the school will take steps that would give them more job stability. Some are even assessing the need for a faculty union in Urbana. Tenured faculty say their non-tenured colleagues deserve a stronger voice in what happens on campus.  

Administrators in the school's provost office have been reviewing issues that are specific to non-tenured instructors. A spokeswoman says the goal is to have some policies in place sometime during this academic year.
