AFT’s Faculty and College Excellence (FACE) initiative is a national campaign to reverse the crisis in instructional staffing at our nation’s colleges and universities. Through organizing, legislative advocacy and collective bargaining, FACE is designed to achieve two goals simultaneously:
- Achieving full equity in compensation for contingent faculty members; and
- Ensuring that 75 percent of undergraduate classes are taught by full-time tenure and tenure track faculty and that qualified contingent faculty have the opportunity to move into such positions as they become available.
The campaign goals are designed to be phased in over time to ensure that there is no job loss for contingent faculty currently working at a college or university.
