Adjunct Faculty

Colo. lawmakers consider measure to raise pay, benefits of adjuncts Colorado lawmakers are considering legislation that would require community colleges to increase pay and benefits for part-time faculty. The measure would base adjuncts' salaries on how much they work -- for example, paying them 50% of the salary and benefits of full-time faculty if they take on 50% of a full-time workload. However, critics say the cost of the measure would force schools to cut back on classes and other operations.   The Coloradoan (Fort Collins, Colo.) (tiered subscription model) courtesy of Bob Robbins
