Non-Tenure Track Faculty Advisory Board

The mission of this advisory board is to ensure inclusiveness and equity so that all non-tenure track faculty experience equitable conditions for teaching, faculty hiring, development, evaluation, and inclusive practices in shared governance across colleges, departments, programs, and divisions. The two charges of the Non-Tenure Track Advisory Board (NTTAB) are:  

  1. The NTTFAB will support the work of the NTTF Implementation Committee in its efforts to enact the recommendations of Task Face to Recommend Best Practices for Non-Tenure Track Instructional Faculty.  
  2. The NTTFAB will make relevant recommendations to the Academic Senate Executive Committee, the Faculty Policy Committee, the Educational Policy Committee, and the Academic Technology Committee.  

Communication: the NTTFAB will communicate the time, place, activities, and recommendation of the board through the non-tenure-track faculty listserv. The NTTFAB will use the listserv to solicit the needs of the non-tenure track faculty across the colleges to better represent their experiences at CSUDH. The NTTFAB will also be kept abreast of current best practices by Faculty Affairs and Development for supporting the professional development of non-tenure track faculty members.
