Class and Labor Committee Phase II Begins

In the March meeting, Provost Claire Sterk spoke to the Faculty Council about Phase II of the work of the Committee on Class and Labor. Last month the council heard a report on the concluded first phase of the committee’s work, which focused on staff. Phase II will focus on the ways in which class and its related distinctions of power and status affect the life and work of faculty members. The charge for Phase II includes an examination of the role of class in faculty work relationships; Emory’s role as an employer in the academic labor market; recruitment, promotion, advancement, and professional development for faculty; and the role of non-tenure-track faculty.

“The focus will be on faculty and their working relationships,” Sterk said, “in other words, the complexities related to distinctions of power and status.”
