Report on Jesuit colleges shows need for a voice on campuses

A new report and survey of faculty at Jesuit colleges and universities shows that instructors have heavier workloads than just a few years ago and have a diminished role in decision-making at their institution.

The findings come a few days before faculty and students at Loyola and Jesuit colleges and universities across the country hold a series of actions on their campuses to advocate for Just Employment and reigniting the social justice mission at their schools.

In August and September 2015, Faculty Forward Network solicited a survey among faculty at Jesuit institutions across the country to assess faculty experiences. The survey generated 353 responses with faculty from 89 percent of all Jesuit colleges and universities participating in the survey. The respondents were both full and part-time faculty, and nearly 40 percent have tenure or were on the tenure-track.
