Adjunct Prof Gov. Spitzer's Salary

As reported on Adjunct Prof Blog, former Gov. Spitzer has accepted a position as an adjunct professor of political science at CUNY. The New York Times reported on Sep't. 3, 2009 that Gov. Spitzer is donating his entire salary back to CUNY. Spitzer is being paid $4,500 for the semester so its not much of a donation for him to make.

The article points out an important fact of adjunct life. Adjuncts are grossly underpaid-even Gov. Spitzer. Most adjuncts teach out of the love for teaching and that is probably why they are considered amongest the best teachers at many colleges and law schools.
