New Voice for Adjuncts

New Voice for Adjuncts
February 23, 2009

Adjunct leaders from a variety of institutions and different parts of the country on Sunday formally agreed to create the National Coalition for Adjunct Equity, which will aim to be a new national voice for those off the tenure track. The co-chairs of the new group are Deborah Louis , who teache at Asheville-Buncombe Technical Community College and Eastern Kentucky University, and Maria Maisto, who teaches at the University of Akron. Maiston, in a statement, said: "Current economic conditions have made adjunct faculty even more vulnerable than usual. We believe it is imperative that a national organization dedicated only to contingent faculty be formed to educate the public about the need for just and equitable treatment of what is now 70 percent of the teaching faculty nationally.”
