Adjunct/Part-time Faculty Working Conditions are Linked to Student Success
A lot of research and energy has gone into understanding what helps students to be successful. Colleges are investing in programs that improve support for students based on the findings. Those things that make students successful are the same things that make faculty successful. It has been shown that there is a direct link between the working conditions of faculty and student success. Yet many teachers are denied even the most basic kinds of support that would make us better able to help our students reach their goals. Download an excellent document written by AFT Seattle President Annette Stofer that outlines the connections between student success and faculty working conditions.
AFT announced that they are partnering with Freelancers Union to offer access to benefits to contingent faculty. [more]
