Grant Summary

$185,000 over 54 months to create a national award that would encourage campuses to rethink their policies as they relate to faculty and help overcome the barriers to scaling best practices and policies that support both faculty and student success. The Delphi Project on the Changing Faculty and Student Success has drawn national attention to the changing professoriate and the implications of contingent faculty labor on student success. The Delphi Award will recognize one four-year and one two-year institution annually at a ceremony hosted by the Association of American Colleges and Universities at its annual conference.
