Cal State Plans Push to Hire Tenure-Track Faculty

June 2, 2014

The California State University System is planning to hire 700 full-time tenure-track faculty members, reversing a decline in the number of positions in recent years, The Los Angeles Times reported. From 2008 to 2013, the number of faculty members either tenured or tenure-track fell from 10,700 to 9,800 -- while enrollment and the use of adjuncts increased. With a better state budget picture, Cal State hopes to reverse that trend, although the hiring would not restore 2008 levels, even though enrollment is up.
