Participate in NFM Survey on Back to School Hiring Experience

Yes, the survey again.... and this won't be the last time either. If there is any problem with the link in the message below, try this link.

New Faculty Majority Foundation

The NFM Foundation is launching a  survey today to study the Fall 2011 back-to-school hiring process experienced by those faculty members employed in contingent (also known as adjunct or non-tenure-track positions, whether full-time or part-time).  

The survey, which  should take no longer than 15-20 minutes, is part of a larger study we are doing of hiring practices.  This survey is intended to give us some preliminary data on what contingent faculty experience during the beginning of the academic year.

The survey link can be found below.  We would appreciate receiving responses no later than Sept 20.  We look forward to sharing the results with you.  Please feel free to contact Dr. Esther Merves, Director of Research and Special Programs, if you have any questions or if you are interested in participating in more surveys and/or helping with research projects.  She can be reached at

Thank you for your participation in this important research!
