News and Events:
Sept. 11 Deadline for submitting proposals for the “Adjunct Faculty Conference” on October 10. TriCcall-for-proposals
On July 10, Tri-C adjuncts went to the Tri-C Jazz Fest and distributed information and sought signatures on a petition to improve adjunct working conditions.
Adjuncts who teach music and other arts are among the lowest paid in higher education — at Tri-C, even less than the $2700 national average, according to The Adjunct Project at the Chronicle of Higher Education. Almost 80% of the faculty at Tri-C are part-time and currently have no access to collective bargaining through which to help Tri-C create contracts that support faculty and students more effectively. Support adjunct efforts to improve their working conditions — students, faculty and the whole community will benefit!
Feb 21 “Adjunct Engagement Session” and Feb 26 Town Hall Meeting at West
Tri-C PTFA members attended and raised the issue of the well-documented connection between faculty working conditions and student learning conditions with the college presidents and hundreds of colleagues.
