The 30-year trend of increased use of part-time faculty in higher education warrants the following questions: Are part-time faculty roles changing in light of the increased presence of part-time faculty in the academia? In addition, what is their contribution to the educational institution's mission of research, teaching, and service? Boyer's model of scholarship was used in this research to answer these questions. The author discusses the research findings and their implications.
