A manifesto by adjunct professors. (For the non-US- based, adjuncts are hired by the course/module. Their positions are poorly paid, and totally lacking in job security and often in benefits such as health insurance.)
We are the non-tenure track faculty who now constitute two-thirds of the instructional workforce at universities and colleges across the nation. We are frequently invisible to administrators, yet we are the first professors and instructors that undergraduate students meet on their journey to becoming engaged learners. We are the majority. We have been silent too long, and it is time for us to reclaim our voices and outline our demands.
