“Please be assured we are meeting weekly to make sure this never happens again,” she said in 2012.

The Eastern Echo, the EMU student newspaper reported on Sept. 16 that once again part-time lecturers were protesting late paychecks.

Part-time lecturers at Eastern Michigan University rallied support at Pray-Harrold hall on Tuesday.

On Sep. 15th, part-time lecturers did not get paid, unlike tenured and tenure-track faculty, full-time lecturers, department heads, deans and EMU’s interim president and upper-level administrates. Part-time lecturers, of whom there are approximately 600, and who teach 40 percent of the credit hours on campus, will get paid on Sept. 30.

  • Review:The Journal of Blacks in Higher Education and Black Issues in Higher Education

    by Mark J. Drozdowski Popping open a Diet Coke, I sat down recently to pore over the mail’s latest delivery: The Journal of Blacks in Higher Education. I must admit that, upon first glance, it’s rather intimidating–160 oversize pages, chock full of text and framed by a stark white cover featuring a lengthy table of […]

    by Amy O’Loughlin It is a little known fact that adjunct faculty qualify for computer manufacturer software and hardware discounts.

Lesley’s adjunct and part-time professors are looking to Tufts for inspiration. Faculty at […]

Prior to the passage of the Part-Time Faculty Equity Pay Law, a typical part-timer teaching four […]
