Chad Evans

Bio: 

Nearly two-thirds of the academic labor force now works off the tenure track, yet our understanding of faculty turnover is generally based on the work experiences of traditional, tenure/track faculty. This is an oversight, as the processes leading to the attrition of traditional faculty likely differ from those of non-tenure track faculty. Chad’s research focuses on how individual and organizational features relate to the turnover intentions of adjunct faculty. Key to his investigations is faculty satisfaction, as different components of satisfaction are suggestive of potential policy interventions. By clarifying the turnover processes of non-tenure track faculty, Chad’s work helps public and administrative officials support and maintain their talented adjunct workforce.
