Missouri Conference of AAUP

Notes from 2007 Annual Meeting, St. Louis, on "Contingent Faculty"

The 2007 Annual Meeting of the Missouri Conference was held on 24 February 2007, at Webster University in St. Louis. The meeting addressed many issues of current concern for higher education in Missouri, particularly state budgetary problems and the increased use of contingent faculty (part-time, non-tenure-track, etc.) in both public and private institutions of higher learning. Speakers included State Senator Rita Heard Days (D-14th District), who serves on the Senate Higher Education Committee and has wide experience in education-related legislation; Richard Schneirov (Indiana State University), a labor historian and member of the AAUP Committee on Contingent Faculty and the Profession; and David Robinson (on our Executive Council). For the first time in recent memory, the MO-Conference Annual Meeting was held jointly with the meeting of another organization, the St. Louis Association for Contingent Faculty (SLACF). Organizers from the American Federation of Teachers (AFT), the Missouri National Education Association (MNEA), and the Missouri Association of Faculty Senates (MAFS) also to us all).
