The Administrator-Adjunct Experience (gag me with a briefcase)

Part of this writing about adjuncts gig includes a little down time in the summer. I am rested, refreshed and ready to blog again. I know the chances are very good that you, gentle readers, are neither rested nor refreshed, but rather fretting over whether you’re going to actually get courses for the Fall term. Maybe you’re calculating whether or not the paltry summer pay you’re taking home is going to last until the first paycheck of the Fall term—probably sometime in mid-September.

Rest assured Deborah Foreman feels your pain. Well, Deborah Foreman feels your pain pseudonymously. That’s not her real name. In this piece from The Chronicle of Higher Education, Deborah Foreman writes that she is shocked, shocked to find that adjunct faculty are not treated as colleagues at many of the institutions where they ply the boards. Deborah Foreman is the pseudonym of a former senior administrator who retired in 2007 from a community college in the East. She is now an adjunct instructor at a large urban university, and Debbie has discovered the truth, brothers and sisters. Praise the Provost.

Is it me, or do editors at The Chronicle seem never to tire of publishing
