Participating Faculty Task Force elevated to standing committee; new members sought, encouraged to apply

To better understand the experience of Marquette’s full- and part-time participating (non-tenure track) faculty, in June 2019, then Acting Provost Kimo Ah Yun convened a Task Force to study the participating faculty experience and make recommendations to improve that experience based on their findings.

As one result of the task force’s work, Provost Kimo Ah Yun has transitioned the group to a standing committee. The Participating Faculty Committee will address issues of importance to members of the Marquette faculty, full and part-time, hired on a participating or non-tenure track line. The committee will focus on how to improve the “lived experience” of participating faculty and address issues that include, but are not limited to, total rewards (including compensation and benefits), professional development, recognition, inclusion, and performance review and promotion.

Full or part-time participating faculty members who have been employed for two-and-a-half or more continuous years are invited to apply for one of five participating faculty member positions. Applicants should have a demonstrated interest in the work of the committee and willingness and ability to serve a two-year term.

Interested faculty should complete this application form and submit it to Dr. Gary Meyer, senior vice provost for faculty affairs, at
