Well, this is not from my university, but I just heard of another school that differentiates from adjunct and full-time instructors by colloquially calling the full-timers “pure instructors.” And at this same institution, there is pressure from the administration to evaluate the adjuncts with lesser scores, so there is not a financial burden on the university to pay somebody more. I’m not revealing the name of this university because 1) what I’m reporting is technically hearsay and because 2) I think these instances point to a national issue. My own university takes pretty good care of its adjuncts. But it just had to adjust its Christmas break, because (from an oversight) it had online adjuncts teaching class a day after the on-campus university had closed for the holiday. Dearies. Adjunct slave-labor has to stop.
