Class and Labor Phase 2

The Office of the Provost and the Office of Business and Administration are facilitating next steps with the Phase 2 Faculty Concerns Report, part of an ongoing examination of issues related to class and labor on the Emory University campus.

  • In the spring of 2010, the Provost and the Executive Vice President for Business and Administration signaled Emory University's commitment to engage in a process that looked at distinct labor segments within our Emory community.
  • In January 2013, the Class and Labor 1 Committee released their report and recommendations centered around issues related to staff employed across the university.
  • In October 2013, then Provost Claire E. Sterk charged the Class and Labor: Faculty Committee (Class and Labor Phase 2) on behalf of the Office of the Provost and the Office of the Executive Vice President for Business and Administration.
  • In the spring of 2016, the Class and Labor Faculty Committee completed its charge in the development of recommendations with the Phase 2 Faculty Concerns Report.

Steering Committee

A steering committee of faculty and administrative leaders, established by the Provost and Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs and the Executive Vice President for Business and Administration, is carrying work forward based on the Phase 2 Faculty Concerns Report.

The Steering Committee is reviewing the full report (over 350 pages), all appendices, and recommendations. Committee members are being asked to:

  1. Assess which recommendations should be moved forward for assignment to working groups to initiate implementation
  2. Determine which recommendations require additional data collection and analysis before being assigned to a working group
  3. Examine which recommendations (if any) are beyond the scope of this Steering Committee and may not be appropriate for moving into an implementation phase
  4. Recommend individuals to serve on working groups that can be assigned recommendations selected for moving forward
  5. Monitor working groups and report on progress to the Provost and the Executive Vice President for Business and Administration

The Steering Committee represents faculty from across Emory and will be in place through 2021, with recurring progress updates to the community. The Steering Committee has also been charged to proactively champion efforts to address issues raised in the report and support engagement with faculty colleagues.
