This panel explores the relationship between the increasing reliance on underpaid and overworked adjunct faculty in colleges and universities and decreased student success and equity, especially in the two-year college. Focusing on the correlation between adjunct conditions and the growing equity gap and construction of a class of students designated "basic skills," this panel attempts to link inequitable adjunct conditions with the equity gaps in student success rates.
Feel free to email me with any questions or concerns. We look forward to your submission.
