Local 500 Members Attend Congressional Briefing on Adjunct Issues

SEIU Local 500 activists from Howard Community College, McDaniel College and George Washington University attended a congressional briefing on Capitol Hill on Monday, October 25.

The briefing was entitled: “Strategies for Overcoming Inequality in Higher Education: Supporting Adjunct Faculty and Their Students “

The briefing focused on issues around adjunct faculty.  A new documentary on adjunct faculty working conditions by the nonprofit Brave New Films was screened and presentations by current adjunct faculty and students explained how legislators and policymakers can reverse this destructive trend of contingent, precarious employment in higher education, including through targeted legislation and the reauthorization of the Higher Education Act (HEA).
