UC-AFT National Adjunct Walkout Day Activities #NAWD
Lecturers are adjunct!

At UC, 50% of student credit hours are taught by contingent faculty.

On February 25, adjunct faculty across the nation are holding actions to raise awareness about the inherent inequality of the two tier faculty system that relies on up to 75% of faculty working off the tenure track.  At many institutions, faculty in these positions receive a fraction of the wages of full time and tenure track faculty, and often have no benefits and no job security.  Adjunct faculty are hired term-by-term with very high teaching loads, and often have to have appointments on multiple campuses to earn a living wage.  Adjunct faculty rise to the many challenges they face in providing the high quality education our students deserve, but the system is broken.

UC-AFT stands in solidarity with contingent, adjunct, part-time, non-tenure track, and visiting faculty who are organizing for a more equitable faculty system.  Please see below for details on all the events we have planned for National Adjunct Walkout Day on February 25.
