Florida A & M to see more changes happen "Florida A&M University President Castell Bryant wants to decrease the school's reliance on part-time faculty members and ensure those who have faculty contracts are teaching. Bryant, who has been interim president since January, said any new way of running the university will put students and faculty first. She blames the reliance on part-time faculty on past management decisions to place staff and administrative positions on faculty contracts. The practice dates back to the tenure of President Frederick Humphries, who left the university in 2001 after 16 years in the top post. 'This practice has mushroomed over the years into a policy that has resulted in the university having nearly twice as many contracts for nonteaching faculty lines as contracts for full-time teaching faculty members,' Bryant writes."
