Support Campus Equity Week by signing and sharing petitions that support equity for contingent faculty and taking other action. Here are links to petitions:
A petition launched by students, adjuncts and affiliates of Duquesne University in the wake of Margaret Mary Vojtko’s death, adjunct professor of French at Duquesne.
A petition to be submitted to Arne Duncan, U.S. Secretary of Education, and President Barack Obama demand better salaries for the underpaid and undervalued adjuncts, the contingency labor force that teaches most of the imperative core classes students need in order to succeed in today’s competitive academic climate.
The Mayday Declaration on Contingency in Higher Education is part of the national Mayday $5K! campaign that was launched in the spring of 2013. Its goal is to ensure educational quality, fairness and equity by improving the wages and working conditions of all contingent faculty in higher education.
Calling on Dusquesne, Manhattan, St. Xavier, and Pacific Lutheran to end their campaign against academic workers.
