This was and is my concern. It took this administration roughly four days to come up with one statement.
We highly value the work of our part-time colleagues in the Art Department. It is clear that our students greatly value their expertise and teaching.
If we are to realize fully IC’s vision of a “student-centered learning community,” we must ensure that all instructors are compensated equitably.
We call on the administration to ensure that adjunct faculty per-credit pay for teaching is equitably based on that of full-time contingent faculty.
We are disheartened and frustrated at the adversarial tone, misleading allegations, and willingness to disrupt the learning environment for our students.
By signing this letter, we express our support to those at the margins that were, are, and (sadly) will continue to be impacted by the outcome of this election.
