MLA Cited in Atlantic Article about Adjunct Faculty Members

Quoted in a recent article in The Atlantic, the MLA’s executive director, Rosemary G. Feal, contends that it is critical for middle administrators and accreditors to play a role in addressing deteriorating faculty working conditions and the exploitation of adjunct faculty members. Despite the high quality of instruction often provided by non-tenure-track faculty members, the article asserts, they are hampered by a lack of resources to support student learning, by restrictions on academic freedom, and by limited time for scholarship.
