A Partial-Load Prof in the GTA Asks

The question is whether the overreliance on partial-load faculty is an urban phenomenon, or province-wide:

Hi all profs in the non-Toronto colleges,
I am trying to get a fix on the number of partial load and part-timers used in the non-Toronto colleges. In Toronto, at Seneca, Centennial, Humber, etc. the use is rampant. There are more non-tenured than tenured faculty by a proportion of more than 70/30. Please contact me at joyce.hall@senecac.on.ca
to give me your impression of the proportions at your colleges. Thanks.

No less importantly, I invite partial-load faculty to e-mail me (confidentially) at ontariocollegeprof@yahoo.com — get your story on the “Profs’ Stories” page, and share your thoughts about why the upcoming strike vote will or won’t affect you, personally.
