Campus Equity Week Toolkit
Ideas and tools for campus education and activism
OCTOBER 24-28, 2022
Campus Equity Week is a time of education and activism that draws attention to the working conditions of faculty working on temporary, low-paid contracts, who now constitute the majority of college instructors. In general, the time to plan actions is during the last two weeks of October.
Officially, the date for Campus Equity Week is October 24-28, but what’s more important is that campus communities (faculty, students, staff, and administrators) to get the word out this fall before the budget and legislative process begin.
This toolkit compiled by the CFT Part-Time Faculty Committee contains materials to plan activities in your local union. Make it happen at your campus!
SIGNS & FLYERS
The following resources have been provided by the AFT for Campus Equity Week and other campus actions.
These rally signs are 17 inches x 11 inches. There are four message signs and one blank sign. The message signs also have a blank back for local messaging if you desire.
This series of flyers is based on the AFT’s 2019 nationwide survey of contingent faculty — the Contingent Faculty Quality of Life Survey. The 52-question survey was completed by 3,076 contingent faculty — part-time faculty, full-time non-tenure track faculty, and graduate employees. AFT was able to draw some robust conclusions about the conditions faced by this new majority of college faculty in the United States. Read our story about the survey results.
