Part-time Lecturer Rates are Rising

For the 2015-2016 Academic Year, Part-time Lecturer Rates will increase as follows:

  • Lecturer Level 1 = $1,546 per credit hour or $4,638 for a 3-credit course assignment (applies to adjuncts who have NOT completed 18 hours of teaching within the community college system)
  • Lecturer Level 2 = $1,633 per credit hour or $4,989 for a 3-credit course assignment (applies to adjuncts  who have completed 18 hours of teaching within the community college system)
  • Lecturer with a clinical component = $11,450 (applies to adjuncts who are teaching a course which included both the didactic and clinical portion of the course assigned)

Free Community College 

Reps. Bobby Scott (VA) and Linda Sanchez (CA) have introduced a bill to help make higher education more affordable. The bill would make Community College free for students who maintain a GPA of 2.5 and provide federal funds to cover most of the cost. It includes provisions that could offer additional funds. It does not appear this will become law anytime soon, but it does highlight the growing recognition of the importance of making higher education accessible to all Americans. 


 

This is an important moment for us to weigh in on the issues that really matter when it comes to quality higher education.


 

Tell your Congressperson that community colleges need funding and that funding includes resources for faculty and staff. Add your personal story about how a lack of resources has impacted your students. We are at the core of higher education, and we need to have our voices heard.
