Are You Teaching on Contract?


National Study on the Experiences of Contract Academic Staff (CAS)


Deadline: December 15, 2017


Canadian Association of University Teachers (CAUT)


The Canadian Association of University Teachers (CAUT) is undertaking the first ever national study on the experiences of contract academic staff. If you taught in the 2016-2017 academic year in a non-permanent position, please fill out the survey by December 15, 2017.


The survey will gather data on a range of objective qualities of contract positions, such as wages, hours of work, office space, and teaching loads, as well as on the experiences of a contract academic.


The survey consists of approximately 60 questions—some multiple-choice and some openended— that should take approximately 30 minutes to complete. The survey can be accessed at CAUT Survey of Contract Academic Staff (CAS)


Additional information on the study, data protection, confidentiality, and risks of participation is accessible via a linked Informed Consent document in the survey’s introduction.


If you have any questions, please contact Pam Foster, CAUT Director of Research and Political Action, foster@caut.ca
