What is the Vancouver model? It's a plan to be fair to part-time and full-time faculty alike, to basically eliminate the two-tier system.
At Vancouver Community College, after instructors complete a relatively short probationary period and a successful review, they become "regular" instructors with the presumption of reappointment. Over time, part timers may switch to full time positions or may remain working part time. All faculty are on the same pay scale and the same seniority list.
Wouldn't it be great if the CUNY administration and the Professional Staff Congress would get together and set up such a fair and sensible plan at CUNY?
If you think we can do better at CUNY, study the Vancouver faculty's contract:
