A Congressman Asks for Adjuncts’ Stories, and Responses Pour In | Vitae


“This eForum is an opportunity for adjuncts and other contingent faculty to inform the Congress about what’s happening on the ground with higher education,” said Miller, a Democrat, in a news release. “I think there is a huge lack of understanding of what it means to be in the adjunct world.”

The forum, which went live Tuesday, asks part-time faculty members to submit statements detailing how long they have worked on a contingent basis, what they receive in compensation and benefits, and how their working conditions help or hinder their ability to do their jobs.
