Adjunct Action Twin Cities

Adjuncts in the Twin Cities area – like adjuncts everywhere – know that work doesn’t stop at the classroom door, but pay and benefits often do. We believe that by forming a union with SEIU, we can build a strong voice to raise professional standards and improve the quality of education.

National Adjunct Compensation Survey

How many hours do you work for every course you teach? Considering the preparation, student correspondence and other work for your students, the answer is probably more than your employer would like to admit but it’s a question that can help improve your work life and many other adjunct and part-time faculty members. Tell us your story to help raise standards in higher education.


Take Action on Adjunct Issues
