Adjunct Faculty Issues? RAFA might be able to help.

At recent meetings of adjuncts and the Richland Adjunct Faculty Association several issues have been discussed:

  • Campus Safety at Night
  • Can 120 Day Rehire Process be Handled on the Division Level
  • Divisions Helping New Adjuncts Familiarize Themselves With Teaching / Admin. Responsibilities
  • Lack of Faculty Parking
  • Laws Restricting Adjunct Teaching Hours
  • Pay & Extra Uncompensated Required Work Hours for Adjuncts
  • SB 11 Campus Carry
  • Utilizing Adjuncts Skills and Allow Them to Apply for Staff / Administrative Positions

Look for notices of future ‘Let’s Chat’ sessions. We’ll have more meetings on different days and at different times this fall and next spring.

We appreciate your comments, suggestions, complaints, and good ideas. Please encourage your colleagues to attend, and we hope to see you again.

There are about 765 adjunct instructors teaching at Richland College this fall; your opinion matters. If you’d like to add your voice to those who advocate on your behalf, consider applying for membership in RAFA.
