From the American Association of University Professors (AAUP):

2016-04-11_12-28-19The Annual Report on the Economic Status of the Profession, 2015–16: Higher Education at a Crossroads, released today, explores the economic value of tenure and looks at how the increasing reliance on faculty in part-time positions has destabilized the faculty by creating an exploitative, two-tiered system that erodes student retention and graduation rates.

The report notes that although inflation-adjusted full-time continuing faculty salaries increased by 2.7 percent between 2014-2015 and 2015-2016, this improvement occurred against the backdrop of a four decade decline in full-time tenured positions (down 26 percent) and full-time tenure-track positions (down 50 percent).

[Our emphasis] This year, for the first time, the data collection includes part-time faculty and graduate teaching assistants, who together represent the majority of the academic workforce.
