We have compiled the resources below to help instructional academic staff learn about their employee rights. The UW System's Title and Total Compensation (TTC) Project has exposed long-standing inequities facing lecturers, visiting professors, and other adjunct instructors.
Together, we can become informed advocates for better pay, job security, promotion opportunities, and working conditions. We are committed to using shared governance and collective action to create the best educational environment for students and employees.
Resource Packet--Start here! This document, created by IAS and faculty volunteers at UWEC, highlights the key issues--a custom-made introduction for instructional staff who want an overview of TTC and some of the issues it brought to light. It also gives one example of how TTC titles can help us get better employment policies for IAS.
Title and Total Compensation Website--this is the UW System's website for TTC. In particular, check out the Standard Title and Job Description Library and Salary Structure links for an overview of how this looks for the whole UW System.
FASRP (Faculty and Academic Staff Rules and Procedures)--in particular, consult pages 78-109 for employment policies concerning academic staff. Policies concern hiring, employment types, promotion and review procedures, non-renewal policies, and procedures for filing complaints and grievances
