The tenure system at American colleges and universities is broken and is adversely affecting the lives of both teachers and students. The time to stand up for change has come.
It’s time for adjuncts and those who depend upon them to stand up against the top-down management style now employed by higher education administrations, time to remember that the focus of education should be students and the greater good.
We’re setting Halloween of 2017 as a date for adjuncts to stand up and be heard. During the year leading up to that date, we’ll be sharing stories, sharing ideas for acts of protest and providing opportunities to actively work to change our failing higher education system.
If you are an adjunct, graduate student, underclassman, parent, high school counselor and high school student, we hope you’ll get involved. It’s your future we’re fighting to improve.
