Inside Higher Ed: Adjunct Solidarity

Utah’s Weber State University is not a hotbed of adjunct activism. There is no union. Adjuncts don’t belong to the Faculty Senate; the national organizations that work with those off the tenure track had a tough time coming up with members at the university. That’s not because adjuncts aren’t important at Weber State. In fact, they teach about one third of its classes.
