A Thank You Letter To All Underappreciated (And Underpaid) Adjunct Professors

Avatar Kate Fitch

You arenโ€™t an adjunct because you arenโ€™t a brilliant teacher, you canโ€™t work full time, or you simply donโ€™t deserve it. You are an adjunct because administrators think that our retention rates will improve with newer computers, prettier hallways, more events, and better courtyards. They think that money is better spent on making the campus snazzy than on giving their teachers a living wage.
