CUNY Professors March on Wall Street

CITY COLLEGE OF NEW YORK–John Jay College of Criminal Justice professor, Katie Surrence, stood outside the New York Stock Exchange on Thursday, September 27, carrying a sign that read “CUNY needs competitive salaries.” Surrence shared, “I am an adjunct and I currently make $3,200 per course.  This is kind of obscene considering the amount of work and investment I put into [teaching].”

City University of New York faculty and students demonstrated in support of a Public Service Commission Public Staff Congress (PSC) contract that will grant adjunct professors a salary of $7,000 per course.
