Description/Abstract

The growth of part-time and off tenure track full time faculty employment in USA higher education institutions since 1970s has been paralleled by the increasing literature on the subject. Many of the studies remain descriptive in nature and focus on the characteristics of the contingent faculty. The present study contributes to a small body of literature that searchers for the organizational and environmental driving factors that bring contingent employment to life.
