This committee is charged to:

  1. Survey the CCCC members who have contingent employment about their working conditions, teaching conditions, and needs.
  2. Identify campuses where there has been improvement in the professional working conditions and conditions of instruction and identify the conditions and processes that led to such improvement.   Disseminate that information the to the membership through FORUM, the CCCC website, or similar venue to aid local strategic action and develop larger strategies.
  3. Identify other professional academic organizations that have substantial interest in issues of part-time, adjunct, or contingent labor. Determine what actions they have engaged in.  Identify potential allies to work with in addressing these issues and in conjunction with the NCTE office approach these organizations to pursue alliances.
  4. Report findings twice yearly to the CCCC Executive Committee.

Spring 2014 Update

Contingent faculty members of CCCC will be hearing from the Committee on Part-time, Adjunct, or Contingent Labor soon with a request to participate in a brief questionnaire about how CCCC can serve you better. Our committee continues to make progress on compiling descriptions of ethical labor practices regarding contingency and will be making those public soon. We also continue to make progress, working with NCTE, to establish alliances across professional and disciplinary organizations working for contingent faculty equity.
