Underpaid and Overworked: Adjunct Professors (#410) Duration: 28:30 STEREO TVG

More than half the faculty in the California State University system are lecturers - faculty with full or part-time temporary positions. As the number of tenured professors has fallen, universities and colleges are hiring on more contract based professors because of its cost efficiency. Correspondent Jennifer Gonzalez discusses the challenges adjunct professors face: job security, lack of benefits and poverty level wages. This episode of Equal Time illustrates the recognition adjunct professors are striving to gain in hopes of bettering the quality of education for students while creating fair job opportunities for those who teach. Guests: Jonathan Karpf, California Faculty Association Vice President -Lecturers, North; Gloria Collins, California Faculty Association Chapter Secretary / SJSU English Lecturer; Kevin Moore, SJSU Linguistics & Language Development Lecturer; Elena Dorabji, SJSU/De Anza Political Science Lecturer
