The expansion of part-time faculty in academia demonstrates a need for research in this area. The purpose was to identify the roles of part-time faculty in baccalaureate nursing programs in the Midwest using Boyer''s model of scholarship. The population included 518 nursing faculty and administrators from 25 colleges and universities in Ohio and Michigan with similar Carnegie classifications. 234 of the mailed surveys were voluntarily returned for a response rate of 45.2%. Major findings included: The service and teaching roles were reported at higher levels than the research and integration domains for part-time faculty. Part-time faculty with more years of teaching experience, higher education levels, and older age had higher levels of research, teaching, service and integration. Higher ranking part-time faculty reported more research and integration, but not service or teaching. Part-time faculty research activities were found to be higher than the level reported in the literature in this study. Part-time faculty in selected institutions in the Midwest were found to have a broader role in academia than thought previously.
