Academe Today's DAILY REPORT
for subscribers of The Chronicle of Higher Education
Here are news bulletins from The Chronicle of Higher Education
for Tuesday, March 30.
* A STUDY BY GRADUATE STUDENTS at Yale has found that tenured
and tenure-track faculty members are responsible for only 30
per cent of undergraduate classroom instruction, while
graduate students and adjunct instructors together handle 70
per cent of undergraduate teaching.
* THE PRESIDENT of Nunez Community College, in Louisiana, was
fired late last week after months of state scrutiny over the
college's shaky finances and sloppy bookkeeping, including
its failure to collect more than $600,000 in tuition.
