This year, campus equity week comes hot on the heels of the first National Walk Out Day, which gained media attention and participation from adjuncts nationwide. As we prepare to launch our latest CEW, we are excited about the direction our collective, national activism has taken us in our work to elevate the profile of adjunct and faculty equity issues.
