Abstract

In research-intensive universities, a complex web of inter-relations between mandates for research productivity and for general education teaching perpetuates the division into a two-tiered faculty described in the ADE survey of staffing patterns in departments of English. Other published and planned MLA and ADE reports—specifically, on the evaluation of scholarship for tenure and promotion, and on the master's degree—further illuminate the inter-relations between graduate education and general education staffing practices. MLA (in its "Academic Workforce Advocacy Kit") and the Coalition for the Academic Workforce (in its issue brief entitled "On Faculty Serving All Students") provide leadership for productive workforce changes.
