This Week in the Voice: Adjunct professors and condoms for all

Screen Shot 2013-10-17 at 11.30.56 PMIn this week’s feature, News Editor Lucia He looks into the problems associated with a growing number of adjunct professors and the shrinking number of full-time professors.

Kerry Danner-McDonald, an adjunct professor in the Theology department, agrees, and adds that time constraints also limit the chances for adjuncts to conduct their own research. “A full-time professor normally gets a research budget. The University will pay for them to travel to academic conferences. They usually teach one or two classes a semester and so they’re also paid and expected to be researching for the college,” she said. “What happens with the adjunct staff [is that] if you’re getting paid so little, you have to work more classes, so you don’t have time to keep up your publications because it is like you’re working multiple jobs.”
