The final round of Professional Development Funds for Part-Time Lecturer faculty has concluded. All $60,000 available in the fund was awarded to 61 Part-Time Lecturers who applied by the deadline of December 15, 2017.
This fund is a benefit negotiated by the PTL Faculty Chapter, Rutgers AAUP-AFT. We must negotiate more funds so that new money will be available to support PTL professional development activities in the years ahead. The current contract expires on June 30, 2018. In order to be able to have funds available, all union members should get involved in advocating for improvement in this benefit along with all the terms and conditions of employment for PTLs.
