Abstract

While “faculty” and “staff” are overarching categories for university employees, a group of EPA Non- Faculty staff members who occupy an interesting space in between have recently formed an “Altac” (alternative academic) Working Group.
The “altac” term generally refers to a sub-set of the growing number of Ph.D.-prepared professionals who are locked out — or have opted out — of faculty careers, but continue to work within the university in professional staff positions.
