    Hello! I would like a way to “sign up” to receive your newsletter via email. You could either email whole issues to subscribers as they come out, or you could send a link when new content is ready. I believe that WordPress widgets for email signups are readily available. Thank you!

    • Ok, I’ll look into it. I think you can “follow” as many people are doing that.

        Thanks for your response! I know it is possible to “Follow” on Twitter or “Like” on Facebook, but those options do not give your newsletter the benefits that an email mailing list would provide. Facebook is notorious for promising to show Page content to Facebook members who have “Liked” a Page, then changing Facebook policy and charging a (steep) fee for showing the Page’s content. As for Twitter, Followers often miss most of the Tweets in their feed. Email offers you a much more reliable way of reaching people.

      • Yes, excellent points. I’ll look into it, but you have to promise to not call this a “newsletter”! 🙂

  2. I think you should report on unionizing efforts going on in Philly. Temple or St. Joe just succeeded and I know that organizers are covertly visting other campuses.

  4. I am so happy to see this newspaper. At age 62, I am one of the impoverished and exhausted traveling adjuncts; one who once lived comfortably teaching seven classes on two local campuses, but who is now only permitted PT employment and a maximum of three classes, often in three different cities. No office, no mileage, constant wear and tear on the automobile, and non-stop mandatory continuing education workshops, mandates and expectations, also with no mileage and never with a guarantee of one more semester, and more and more at-home work requirements as well.

    Adjuncts who are let go simply never hear from the school again while waiting for their next semester’s assignments. It gets worse every year, expectations rise every year, and the pay has us in poverty and on public assistance. Our college now has a food bank for students and faculty.

    I am grateful to you for caring.

  5. Thank you thank you! Another older adjunct here. I’m a single woman responsible for some teens and young adolescents, along with my own self. Trapped in the lifestyle until I can think of and secure a new income stream. And at this time in life my full time acquaintances are talking (and talking and talking) retirement. Unless I move, I have to freeway fly as the community college system I teach within only allows me three classes in each “district.” No health insurance, my youngest teen is on Medicaid, we get food stamps and other public assistance, and no retirement plan to speak of for adjuncts. No job security, barely any acknowledgement except by students and other adjuncts. Last night I was wondering if I should just give up and today I discovered your newspaper. Thank you for encouraging me to hold my head up again!

  6. Hello Team Adjuncts!! I teach (men) for a community college at a Federal prison. There are not a great deal of people who like to teach at the prisons, so if job security is an issue, I recommend checking into it. You have to be really creative, because they are not allowed to use computers or the internet (to include calculators). The students are a real treat (over-achievers, ya know). Ditto on the commute and pay; however, the work is rewarding. Looking forward to seeing what happens here. Here’s to goodwill, peace, hope and joy for all of us!!!

  7. Dushko, I have coined a term born from the obvious and it addresses your great article on adjunct Professors . The word is, CorpoRapetions ,CorpoRaptors and whatever forms of the word you need. The idea is that the CorpoRaptive world from cradle to grave is high profits and damned be any concern to the lives of the peoples that it tramples . Like a Vampire it sucks the life from any and all under the one way mirror glass shield of the super rich on top of society . I could go on about how so many schools are tailored to churn out more MBA’s and no industrial Arts in concert with shrinking Fine Arts,but you most likely realize these elements of our “Pottersvillian Society”-from “It’s A Wonderful Life”. Just thought you might enjoy the word tool. Please always capitalize the second “R” . Be safe driving ,Merry Christmas ,Happy Hanukkah,Happy Holidays,or whatever celebrate .

  8. I wish I had known about your newspaper this past summer when it first came out. As part of an adult learning program, I created a blog directed at administrators, directors, and those working with adjuncts (such as librarians like myself). I was an adjunct for a short period of time and now, as a librarian, realize that I seldom get to interact with those that now account for almost 70% of the higher education teaching staff! Hence, the project was interesting and very work-related for me. The blog, Supporting Adjuncts in Higher Education is at: https://flintonadjuncts.wordpress.com/.
