Kudos to the AFT-FACE campaign for its support: Write your Senators!

The latest edition of the AFT On Campus publication (Jan./Feb. 2010) features a great interview with researcher Adrianna Kezar of USC and Cecil Sam, USC graduate assistant, who have studied higher education institutions and their use/misuse of adjunct faculty. See the AFT links on the side of this page for more on this -- Kezar and Sam get it right, and considering neither one of them are adjuncts, it's good to hear!

The FACE campaign is asking all of us to write our U.S. Senators now to promote better treatment for adjuncts and more full-time hiring on university campuses. Please hit the link to submit your thoughts in their form.

Last, but not least, if you haven't already done so, please take a few minutes to take the "Adjuncts in Academia 2010 Survey" here. We are an issue whose time has come! Your voice is needed and greatly appreciated!
