Faculty Story: Alexander Motten, Biology

Motten cropped

A significant proportion of undergraduate teaching at Duke is carried out by non-tenure track faculty, but salaries, workloads, lengths of contract, and opportunities for advancement vary greatly. While many of us are no doubt well treated, others among us rightfully feel taken advantage of. My impression is that the University’s commitment to non-tenure track faculty as a group has diminished in recent years, and I would like to see that issue addressed so that our undergraduates can be assured of the high quality teaching they deserve. I support forming the union so that we will have a real voice to make sure that it is.
