    I was an adjunct at UCC and without warning or any problems, I was dropped. One moment I was on the Fall 2015 schedule and the next I was off. The position was advertised in multiple publications as hiring. My peer review was very good and so were my student evaluations. I put a lot of extra time in with students for academic meetings and guidance for personal situations.

    I was told, no one knew why, “that’s the life of an adjunct,” and I was refused an exit interview. Actually, it is not the life of an adjunct because at the universities, I am treated with complete respect. At the universities, I was compensated for workshops from the onset and included in meetings and my semesters are scheduled semesters in advance.

    well said. Although some if the article repeats, all the contributors who are the adjuncts all have the same common experience. ‘unidentified professor’

    A Community College that has no respect for its full time faculty and does all it can to force people into early retirement could hardly be expected to respect their adjunct faculty. The administration has increased building projects, increased administrative positions, and increased adjunct faculty. Enrollment has declined and our increased graduation rate is due to fakery. The top administration are not educators, they are cheesy business people and have picked up the worst practices of the financial world.

    Well has anyone looked back in mcmenamin job history? She was at Brookdale Community College and left before a major scandal involving university administration there.

    Cooking the graduation statistics, increased building projects, more administrators and less tenured professors, not having a good neighbor policy with the citizens of Cranford. It sounds more like a, “House of Cards,” with Mcmenamin playing the role of Frank Underwood.
