Contingency and Gender: How Adjunct Hiring Disproportionately Effects Women and POC

On September 20, 2019, David Kociemba, AAUP East Coast Organizer, presented “Contingency and Gender: How Adjunct Hiring Disproportionately Effects Women and POC. What adjuncts, tenured faculty and unions can do.” David cited AAUP statistics which show that 2/3rds of contingent faculty nationally are women and people of color. His talk focused on what the AAUP Chapter can do to support them now and in upcoming contract negotiations. His presentation can be found on the UConn-AAUP’s Facebook page.
