Texas Tech Provost Wants For-Profit Faculty Rosters

September 13, 2010

Bob Smith, provost of Texas Tech University, heard his counterpart at the University of Phoenix say this summer that many Phoenix faculty members are faculty members at leading public universities. So, as The Lubbock Avalanche-Journal reported, Smith asked Phoenix and other for-profits for faculty rosters. At Texas Tech, faculty members teaching part-time elsewhere would need his office's permission -- and he has never received such a request. So he wants to check whether any of his faculty are teaching in the for-profit sector, without permission. So far, he hasn't received any for-profit rosters.
