Zdenko Juskuv teaches five courses on at least three different campuses for two different Rhode Island colleges, and spends 40 to 50 hours a week, sometimes even 60, grading papers, advising students in person and over email, planning and preparing new course materials, and more.


For all this, the Master’s-educated adjunct professor earns about $24,000 a year, without health benefits or job security. And still, he says, he loves it. “I really enjoy working with the students, building relationships with them… seeing them succeed in life and better themselves.”


In his recent State of the Union address, President Obama promised action on the issue of income inequality in the United States. “Those at the top have never done better,” he said. “But average wages have barely budged. Inequality has deepened. Upward mobility has stalled.”


Those words ring especially true on college and university campuses, where a growing number of adjunct or contingent faculty members like Juskuv earn poverty wages, and struggle in working conditions that often undermine student learning. For many, forming or joining a faculty union is the answer.

Building Relationships That Transform Futures

Building Relationships That Transform Futures | CHS PD 2014-15 | Scoop.it

It starts with relationships. Building relationships isn't easy. The students who need us most are the ones who push us in all the wrong ways. But by working as a community and emphasizing four important elements of relationship building, we've found that we can reach all students.
