Follow up - National Coalition of Adjunct Faculty is a reality

To follow up on a story we brought you last Friday courtesy of Inside Higher Education, the National Coalition of Adjunct Faculty became a reality yesterday (Sunday, February 22, 2009) when Deborah Louis of Eastern Kentucky University and Maria Maisto of University of Akron were elected co-chairs of the nascent group.  They released a statement saying: 

"Current economic conditions have made adjunct faculty even more vulnerable than usual. We believe it is imperative that a national organization dedicated only to contingent faculty be formed to educate the public about the need for just and equitable treatment of what is now 70 percent of the teaching faculty nationally.”

I am the scholarship dude.
