Campus Equity Week Coverage Round-Up
Campus Equity Week ran from October 28, 2013-November 2, 2013. The goal of CEW is to draw attention to the working conditions of the nation’s non-tenured faculty. Campus Equity Week was started by the Coalition of Contingent Academic Labor, a grassroots coalition of activists in North America working for contingent faculty: adjunct, part-time, non-tenured, and graduate teaching faculty. We seek to bring greater awareness to the precarious situation for contingent faculty in higher education, organize for action, and build solidarity among our colleagues.
