Resolution Letter: Improved Conditions for Contingent Adjunct or Non-Tenure Track Faculty

Executive Officer Héctor L. Delgado, Keith R. Johnson, and Gillian Niebrugge-Brantley wrote on behalf of the Society for the Study of Social Problems (SSSP) to address the issue of improved conditions for contingent adjunct or non-tenure track faculty. The impact of adjunct or contingent faculty in higher education has increased dramatically in the past few decades, and is likely to increase in the future, in part as a consequence of the pandemic. Non-tenure track faculty constitute over 70% of the instructional workforce. They are, indeed, the new teaching majority. We believe that institutions’ increased reliance on non-tenure track faculty, and prospective students’ and their parents’ desire to have as much information as possible in their selection of a school, calls for the inclusion of adjunct faculty’s salaries and benefits as well.
