The AHA Council passed the following resolution at its June 16–17, 2001, meeting.

In continuing support of part-time and adjunct employees, the Council of the AHA approved the following resolutions:

Resolves that the Organization of American Historians and the American Historical Association should publicize existing statements of best practices in employment of history faculty, and both organizations should commit themselves to encourage the acceptance of these standards by publicizing them to accrediting agencies, state legislatures, guides to higher education, and the National Association of Guidance Counselors, among others.

The OAH and AHA further resolves to support the efforts of the joint committee of both organizations to formulate quantitative minimum standards for part-time employment.
