Survey Says: Tenured Profs, Adjuncts Split Over Adjunct Pay

BROOKLYN COLLEGE–For years, CUNY educators have been pushing for adjunct pay to be doubled to $7,000 per course, but new data suggests that a majority of tenured and tenure-track professors don’t think the $7K movement is “very important.”

That’s just one of many findings from a survey of over 8,000 members of CUNY’s faculty union, the Professional Staff Congress (PSC-CUNY). Conducted in spring 2017, shortly after the ratification of CUNY’s most recent contract, the survey was released to the public last month. Clocking in at 47 pages, it contains data on everything from satisfaction with individual campus administrations to how much CUNY faculty spends on housing.
